 Cheppe kheeri (turmeric leaves flavoured rice in coconut milk)...a true konkani festive delight

Cheppe kheeri is a rice pudding flavoured with turmeric leaf In konkani "Cheppe " means no sugar or salt completely bland but still we konkanis love this dish because of the unique flavour that comes from the turmeric leaves(haldi paan/patholi paan) and coconut milk..some prefer to season it with salt but i like it as it is.This dish is specially prepared during Nagpanchami and Ganesh chaturthi.
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 15 mins
Total time: 25 mins
  • 1/4 cup Basmathi rice/flavoured rice
  • 3 cups Fresh grated Coconut
  • 2 Fresh turmeric leaves

  • Cooking Directions

    1. First grind coconut with 3cups of water to smooth paste.
    2. Now mix washed rice and coconut paste and cook on low flame.
    3. While its cooking add turmeric leaves and cook rice till soft and mushy,the consistency should be like our rice pudding/kheer.
  • Relish it with or without salt....My kids love to have it with sugar just like rice pudding but flavoured with turmeric leaf
