Doodh Pak (Rice pudding)

Doodh pak or Rice pudding is a very popular dessert prepared all over the world (with some variations in the ingredients, rice and milk being the main ingredient). This is commonly made for wedding or other special occasion. I love this dessert very much (I can eat it any time of the day:-)). Anyone who has a sweet tooth will surely love this. This dessert is  simple and easy to prepare.

  • Basmathi rice, raw- 1/2 cup
  • Milk- 3 cups
  • Sugar- 1/2 cup+ 2 Tbsp (Adjust to your taste)
  • Saffron- Few Strands
  • Cardamom Powder- 1 tsp
  • Water- 2- 2 1/2 cups
  • Ghee- 1/2 Tbsp
  • Cashew and Raisins- 2 Tbsp

Take a big kadai and start heating water. To this add the washed rice. Now add 1/2 cup of milk to this. Mix well and close the lid. Let the rice cook completely (keep checking in between). Once it cooks completely, add saffron. After a minute add the remaining milk and mix well. When it comes to boil, continue heating for 5-10 more minutes. Now add sugar and mix well. Check for sweetness and consistency (If you want it thick, then heat for some more time. You can also add more milk if you want) Turn off the heat. Add cardamom powder and garnish it with cashews and raisins fried in ghee. Doodh Pak is ready!!

Serve it warm or cold. Above measurement serves 5-6 people.
