Homemade Granola Recipe

Homemade Granola Recipe

My father was always the official granola chef in our family. I learned to make Granola as a boy. This is one of the easiest recipes for fresh homemade granola. This recipe is easily adapted to your taste with the addition or deletion of sweeteners, spices, nuts, seeds or dried fruits. My dad sometimes uses orange juice and zest instead of honey.

Kheer Indian Rice Pudding Recipe

Kheer Indian Rice Pudding Recipe

This recipe brings back so many memories of great Indian Sweets tasted while traveling in India as well as our wonderful Indian Restaurants in Berkeley. This dessert is truly comfort food.

Indians prefer to add the nuts and raisins into the milk and rice mixture early on in the cooking process so that the raisins plump up and the nuts become softer to the tooth. I prefer the nuts crunchy and served as a flourish on top of a bowl of kheer. If you don’t care for cardamom, leave it out. Typically this sweet is served at room temperature.
