  1. Rinse the Rice:
    • Start by rinsing the Basmati rice under cold water until the water runs clear. This helps remove excess starch.
  2. Toast the Nuts:
    • In a small pan, heat half a teaspoon of ghee over low heat. Add the chopped nuts and raisins, and sauté until the nuts turn golden and the raisins plump up. Set them aside.
  3. Cook the Rice:
    • In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, add the rinsed rice and 1 cup of milk. Cook the rice on low heat, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, until it's almost fully cooked.
  4. Add the Milk:
    • Pour in the remaining milk and stir well. Allow the mixture to simmer on low heat, stirring occasionally to avoid scorching.
  5. Infuse the Flavors:
    • Add the crushed cardamom pods and soaked saffron (along with the milk it was soaked in) to the simmering kheer. The aroma will begin to infuse the dessert with its distinct flavor.
  6. Sweeten the Deal:
    • Gradually sprinkle in the sugar, stirring continuously to dissolve it. Adjust the amount of sugar to your preference for sweetness.
  7. Garnish and Serve:
    • Once the kheer reaches a creamy consistency and the rice is completely cooked, stir in the toasted nuts and raisins. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly before serving.
  8. Enjoy the Bliss:
    • Scoop the fragrant kheer into two bowls and serve it warm or chilled, as per your preference. The enticing aroma and rich flavors are sure to enchant your taste buds.
  9. Conclusion:
