It’s hard to imagine a meal of tandoori or kebabs without kheer, an exquisitely creamy rice pudding dessert popular in Central Asia and the Indian subcontinent. Kheer owes its exotic, perfumed fragrance to cardamom and rose water and its richness to the milk, which is boiled until reduced by almost half to concentrate its flavor.
