Chocolate Kheer, who can think of such a combo right? well I know this one person who can stir any recipe within minutes and come up with unusual combinations yet make the dish super appetizing. She is a lovely friend, sister, blogger, mother and someone who still surprises me with her down to earth nature and be the most approachable person on earth. She is beautiful inside out and carries a bright smile, I had the chance to meet her in person and spend time with her, that I know many would wish for. To me she is an amazing cook, bestest friend and an elder sister I never had. We've had many long endless conversations and I have always been the one holding the phone listing, wondering how to frame the words and to the contrary she would be this endless pom pom ball talking endlessly ;-). I must thank blogging world for adding some awesome people into my life who are so special and dear to me. I know you must have guessed who I am talking about its my aks Priya Suresh :-). Priya aks you sure are one big gift to me. Aks I have always admired your energy, friendliness, blogging passion and your approach to life itself. Love you for who you are...
Why chocolate kheer? and all the rambling? well its her birthday today and we a bunch of bloggies wanted to do a virtual birthday treat for her. This time around we wanted to do recipes of different colors and cook something that is her own recipe. So I chose Chocolate as my choice of color and there is a reason behind it cos its Priya aks favorite, I must tell you all this she is so crazy about chocolates that she came from Paris to London and the one thing she wanted to buy was Dairy Milk to take back with her to Paris. That chocoholic, chocolaty and chokywookey doo daa :P ! So you see I made her Chocolate Kheer and clicked pictures with a pink background cos she is a pink fetish personality. Priya aks I hope you are having a ball reading this post.
Happy Birthday to my beautiful, charming and
ever loving sweet Priya Aks.
Wishing you blissful years with fond memories to keep you smiling always :-)
Chocolate Rice Kheer is a sweet dessert prepared the traditional way with a twist of using chocolate. Its a rich creamy dessert that is luscious with the rich tasting chocolate and basmathi rice, almost doing magic to your tastebuds. The cardamom powder is very light in taste and the chocolate has an over powering taste to the recipe. You can alternately use cocoa powder by diluting it in 2 tbsp of warm milk and adding it along with the condensed milk. You can do the same recipe using white chocolate too ;-) the options and choices are almost endless.
