Almond and Pistachio Rice Pudding

This is kheer from India, a cardamom-flavored, sweet rice pudding. You can toss in there a whole array of goodies. We stopped at almonds and pistachios. Did we mention this is also temple food and can be consumed by the gods, too? So why wait?! Give it a try!

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
