Microwave Chocolate Rice Pudding

This is a simple Chocolate Kheer/Chocolate Rice pudding recipe made all the more simpler by cooking in a microwave.I always wanted to make chocolate rice pudding after seeing one in food network.Now I found a microwave kheer in my microwave cookbook by Tarla Dalal.So I sort of combined the two and voila a chocolate dessert within minutes.So here it is.

Long Grained Rice: 3 tbsp
Milk: 1 cup + or -
Hot Water: 3/4 cup
Milk/semi/unsweetened Chocolate: 1 0z or handful of chocolate chip or 1 big square
Cocoa Powder: 1 tbsp
Sugar: 3 tbsp +

Clean and drain rice.In a big microwaveable bowl,add hot water and rice and microwave at full power (HIGH) for 8 minutes.Remove from the oven,cover and keep aside for atleast 10 minutes.After 10-15 minutes,lightly mash the grains,add cocoa powder,chocolate,sugar and 3/4 cup milk ,mix well and microwave again at full power for 3 minutes.Take out and add more milk (total almost 1 cup milk) to obtain the pudding of your consistency.Microwave again for 1-2 minutes and then cover and keep outside till serving time. Spoon in bowls and serve warm or at room temperature,garnished with roasted cashewnuts.

For roasting cashewnuts, mix cashew nuts in clarified butter/ghee(optional) and spread as a single layer in a flat microwave safe plate,microwave for 2 minutes or more till it starts browning.

I like my version to be thick.So I added only 1 cup of milk.Feel free to add more milk or condensed milk as well to obtain your consistency.Adjust sugar as per taste and condensed milk if using.Also chocolate can be more than 1 oz.The pudding thickens as time passes.So feel free to add more milk.The timings may change by a few minutes depending on your microwave.This easy chocolate rice pudding/chocolate kheer is on the way to MEC: Puddings hosted by Jayasree,an event started by Srivalli.I know its a last minute entry,but kindly bear with me.

Also the chocolate dessert is to celebrate a token of gratitude which is actually a token of friendship and appreciation by another Chocoholic Blogger Friend -Yasmeen .Thanks Yasmeen for this appreciation.

This dish is also to celebrate the wonderful fact that I am a part of Finest Foodies Friday this week by Foodie Blogroll-THANKS JEN,for this honour and appreciation.

Also I am a FoodCandy Featured Blog since last few days.Thanks all for taking time to read and leave your esteemed comments on my amateurish/experimental attempts in cooking.
