|Making Vegan Kheer from The Indian Slow Cooker Book by Anupy Singla|
I made the Kheer, "Rice Pudding", slow cooker style tonight. Followed the recipe, kind of! This of course is yet another recipe from my most recent favorite Vegan Slow Cooker kick. From the Indian Slow Cooker by Chicago's own, Anupy Singla. I used organic brown basmati rice and homemade almond milk which I made in the Vita-Mix. This recipe was only supposed to take 3 hours which is why I made it because I had an intense sweet tooth and absolutely never get to eat rice pudding since even the vegan versions use sugar. I used some agave but next time I think I would just put some dates in the blender with water to create a date paste/liquid. There is a slight discrepancy on the page about cooking it on "high" or "low".

I just put almonds and water in the Vita-mix to make the milk.

Next time I would cook on high and buy the golden raisins organic or without any preservatives! The kind at the Indian Store contained Sulfur Dioxide which I just think is icky. I hate when they add stuff to just plain food. Really, why do raisins need another ingredient other than grapes?
