How to make it
- Wash rice, soak and keep aside.
- In a medium saucepan bring water to a boil, add salt. Drain soaked rice and add to boiling water. Cook until well done about 15 minutes.
- Add cooked rice into a 4 qt crock pot (slow cooker), add milk. Make sure that the milk remains at least 2 inches below the rim of the cooker. Stir once and set to cook on High for about 5-1/2 hours.
- Stir occasionally. After 5-1/2 hours when the rice and milk have come together add almonds, raisins and sugar. Stir thoroughly and cook on high again for at least 30 minutes.
- Turn off the heat and add kewra or rose water. Transfer the kheer into a serving dish and garnish with almonds and powdered pistachios (you can use whole or flaked ones too). Serve chilled.
