No-one needs a dietitian to tell them that this kheer isn’t for you if you’re watching your weight! Best saved for special occasions. But you could try making a healthier version – choose skimmed milk, a little honey and dried fruit for sweetening. It's also delicious with grated carrots added during cooking.
0.5 cup rice
