Sweet rice

Sweet Rice is a perfect meal for summer – it is light, cooling and easy to digest. Ghee is helpful for heat and dryness, however, since the Agni is low, do not use excessive Ghee at this time and do not use nuts also in this season (as some recipes may suggest), because they are heavy to digest.

Ingredients –

1 cup Sona Masoori rice                ¼ cup whole Organic Milk                   1 pinch Saffron strands

1 tbsp. Ghee                                   ½ cup Organic Sugar                    ¼ tsp Cardamom seed powder

Steps –

  • Wash and cook / boil rice in 1 cup water, with covered lid. When rice it almost cooked, remove it from flame, and spread it on flat open surface for it to dry (10 minutes).
  • Warm the milk and add Saffron strands to it.
  • In a pan, heat the Ghee, add sugar and saffron milk to dissolve the sugar, add the rice and stir to mix well. Add ¼ cup Raisins (optional), cover and cook on low heat for 2-3 minutes.
