Let's cook together!!

Lavender blueberry rice pudding

kheer

Lavender has been an alien thing for me until we moved to the States. I knew just the smell of it because we got  lavender scented soaps and talcum powder back then. So the moment I came to know about the Lavender Farm near me, I wanted to visit it asap.

But by the time I could get a chance to go, the season had almost come to an end. We still managed to see beautiful lavender bushes and I picked a bunch of dry lavender sprigs. We had so much fun and I loved the entire experience. Seee..

 

 

 

And I made kheer using that lavender..

 

I happily came home with a bunch of edible lavender and few lavender goodies for friends.  The last week has been full of exploring recipes involving lavender and I found ton of them. I settled on taking the easy way, made rice pudding/ kheer for the summer evenings and gosh! The kheer never tasted so good before. Sweet tones with loads of minty , floral taste made the best combo. And I thought, why not share it with you guys too.
