- 1 litre Milk
- 60gms Rice
- 3-4 tbsp Sugar
- ½ tsp Cardamom Powder
- 1.5tbsp Ghee
- 5-6 tbsp Paan Syrup
- 100gms Fresh Cream
- 100 gms Dark Chocolate
- 5gms butter
- Pistachio Slivers, to garnish
- Clean, wash & soak rice for at least 1 hour. Drain the rice in a colander & keep aside.
- Heat ghee in a pan & add the rice, stir for 20-30 seconds & then 3/4th of the hot milk & stir.
- Let the rice cook in milk with occasional stir in between, add the remaining milk if needed.
- Half way through add the cardamom powder & mix. When the rice is almost cooked, add the sugar as per taste & let it incorporate. (Add less sugar as the paan syrup is sweet too)
- Once the kheer is ready, let it cool down completely.
- Now add the paan syrup & let it chill in the refrigerator.
- For the Ganache, chop the chocolate into small pieces & transfer it into a bowl. Heat the cream until its hot & not boiling & pour over chocolate. Add the butter & mix till the chocolate is melted & the ganache is smooth.
- Pour some ganache into shot glasses & keep aside for it to set completely. Now pour some kheer over it & top it up a small dollop of gulkand. Garnish with Pistachio slivers & serve your guests this Diwali.
