Namaste Nepalese Kitchen – Khir

Rice Pudding

Rice Pudding – Khir

As a kid, I loved Rice Pudding or Creamed Rice. It was straight out of the can and was super sweet and a very satisfying dessert.

On one of our latest family trips to Nepal, we sat down for dinner and were served a big bowl of Rice Pudding sweet with dried fruits and sugar. I couldn’t believe it. Rice pudding for dinner!

Khir (Rice Pudding) is considered a special dish in Nepalese culture. It is often made during Festival time or for a special occasion (such as family visiting from abroad!)

We love it and often have it as a breakfast treat or for a lovely snack.

We make it without sugar and use organic ingredients.


1 Litre – Milk

1/2 Cup – Rice (of your choice, we like Basmati)

Handful of desiccated Coconut

2 or 3 –  Medjool Dates – chopped

1/2 Tsp – Ground Cinnamon

Pinch – Cardamon Ground (fresh or pre-ground)

Pinch – Nutmeg  (Freshly grated or pre-ground)

Optional – Sugar or alternative Sweetener such as Agave or Maple syrup


Bring milk to boil in a medium sized pot

Add the coconut and chopped dates

Add the spices (Cinnamon, Cardamon and Nutmeg) and stir

Add the Rice and sweetener if desired (we don’t as the dates add a lot of sweetness) again stir

Bring back to the boil and then simmer for about 30 – 40 minutes

Stir a few times during the cooking and add extra milk or water if needed

Towards the end of the cooking, you may need to stir often

Namaste And Enjoy!

T.R.E.E. Guide to Yoga Poses


T.R.E.E. Guide to Yoga Postures

By Jennifer Walsh-Rupakheti – Owner & Founder of Namaste Yoga Centre Belfast


If you are struggling with a Yoga posture, take a breath and remember T.R.E.E.

Try – Give it a go. Try the Yoga Posture and see how it goes. If you don’t try then you will not know what you are capable of

Relax – Remember to relax into the Yoga posture. When you tense up and try too hard, your muscles will contract. This means that you are tensing the muscles that you are trying to stretch. Ooch.  So relax and allow your body to gently stretch and release tension

Ease – Be gentle with yourself and your body in the Yoga pose. Don’t push and force. Go easy, slowly and gracefully through the posture. Remember, Yoga is not a competitive sport.

Enjoy – Smile, laugh and giggle. Take time to enjoy it. You are amazing!
