sunday afternoon snack

Instead of lunch, I made a yummy chia kheer. It tastes just like Indian rice pudding. Sweet, fragrant, and nutty. Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants, a good source of fiber, calcium, and protein. And unlike flax seeds, you don't have to grind them to release their goodness, and they don't turn rancid easily.

Here's how to make your own ...

Combine 3 tbsp of chia seeds with a handful of toasted slivered almonds (you can also add raisins and pistachios if you like)
Add a pinch of cardamon and cinnamon; 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract and rose water
1 cup milk (you can also use almond/ hemp/ coconut milk)
3 tbsp condensed milk (or substitute with either honey, maple syrup, or brown sugar)
Mix well and refrigerate for 3-4 hours.
