“Every September in India a grat festival is held to give thanks to Ganesha (the elephant god). A celebratory pudding is eaten in celebration - kheer, creamy rice pudding. Because I love coconut, I've changed to recipe & replaced the regular milk with coconut milk. Note that you can adjust thickness by using less or more milk. This is not for everyday as it is very sweet.”
