It is typically flavoured with saffron, cardamom, raisins, and/or various nuts, notably pistachios, cashews, and almonds. “A sweet milky dessert, to be eaten cold, made either with corn-flour or rice flour or sometimes both, and usually flavoured with rose water and/or ground cardamom.

 The dish is decorated with chopped or ground almonds or pistachio nuts.” Another off-shoot of kheer is sholah-e-zard, which is a sweet yellow rice pudding.
