Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 50 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: 2 servings

  • 50 grams rice, soaked in water for 15 minutes

  5. After 10 minutes, remove the lid and add in the peanuts. Stir well and let the rice cook in the sugarcane juice until it gets cooked completely.
  6. Raise heat to medium and cook until the juice almost dries up. Stir continuously once the kheer (pudding) thickens.

      Sugar cane was the main industry on my island when I was a child. Folks did lots of things with sugar cane and its juice, and now I'm wondering if anybody did this; if they did I never heard of it. Really interesting! Thanks.
