Kheer is an Indian version of rice pudding cooked with milk and sugar, flavored with nuts and saffron.
  Rice 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Whole milk 4 Cup (64 tbs)
  Sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (or adjust to taste)

  Cardamom powder 1 Teaspoon
  Almond 2 Tablespoon, sliced
  Pistachio 1 Tablespoon, sliced
  Butter 1 Teaspoon

Use a non-stick frying pan to make kheer.
Wash rice, changing water until the water appears clear.
Melt the butter in a frying pan on medium heat.
Add the rice and stir-fry for 2 minutes.
Add the milk, cook until the rice is tender and the milk is creamy and reduced to about half. Stir often to ensure the milk does not burn in the bottom of the pan.
Add the sugar, saffron, cardamom, almonds and pistachios and let simmer for a few more minutes.
Turn off the heat.
As kheer cools of will become thicker in texture.
Kheer can be served chilled or warm.
