Kheer has always been one of my favorite Indian desserts. Not overly sweet, it is quick to make and good for summer or winter as it is delicious hot or cold! I was on the prowl for a unique dessert as I had some friends coming over. Friends who would eat anything, but when it comes to chocolate, would burn a hole in the pot. That’s when I decided to combine this simple Indian recipe with the divine goodness of chocolate. Sans any strong Indian flavors like that of cinnamon, cardamon, raisins etc, this recipe is quite straight forward and very easy to make.

Try this treat That needs not a bake.
Strumming with flavor Indian and sweet,
Chocolaty enough to Make you jump off your seat.”
