Black Rice Kheer also known as Chak-Hao Kheer in Manipuri is one of my favourite pudding and I am super excited to share the recipe here today. Chak – Hao Kheer is a traditional kheer recipe from the Indian State of Manipur. Manipir produces a large scale of black rice and this black rice kheer is one of the most popular dish not only within the state but amongst the neighbouring states and many parts of India. Black Rice Kheer is one of the healthiest dessert. It is more healthier than the white rice kheer.

Black Rice takes more longer time to cook than the other normal rice. The rice is soaked for couple of hours or overnight and then cooked. Some even pressure cook the rice first before making the recipe to make it faster. But here i have soaked the rice overnight and cooked it like the way we cook normal rice. You can add milkmaid to the recipe. The dry fruits and nuts can be roasted in ghee before adding it to the kheer. I have not used the milkmaid and ghee since the rice is itself so flavorful and aromatic and so did not want to overpower the real flavor of rice with those ingredients 😉.
