Similar to arroz con leche, Indian rice pudding–or kheer–is a dessert that involves soaking rice in hot milk and combining it with spices. It’s rich, it’s creamy and flavors like cinnamon and cardamom make it taste far more complex than it truly is. With one dish and easy prep, this often overlooked dish is one that should definitely be attempted.
