Peera, a sweet treat.


One cup of white rice, uncooked.

Half a teaspoon of cardamom powder.

1 tablespoon of ghee.

Half a cup of water.

One and a half cups of white sugar.

One cuarter of a teaspoon of grated ginger.

Half a cup of full cream milk powder.


  1.  Soak the rice for thirty minutes and drain.
  2. Grind the rice into a fine powder.

Note:  I used my magic bullet and it came out right first time.

  • Parch the ground rice on a low fire.

Note.  You are just heating the ground rice to dry it out.

  • Then sift.  Note.  When sifting some larger particles may remain.  Just grind it again in the magic bullet.  Nice and easy.
  • Add the cardamom powder and powdered milk.
  • Add the ghee and set aside.
  • Put the sugar to boil and add the grated ginger.
  • Boil until the sugar forms thin threads when dropped from a spoon.
  • Quickly pour the sugar into the rice mixture and stir.
  • Quickly pour into a greased dish before it completely hardens then cut into squares.

Note.  Timing here is paramount.  Everything must be done quickly because the sugar crystallizes very quickly.  Make sure to do this quickly or you will have peera lumps lol! Ah gone!  That’s it for another simple yet extraordinary recipe!
