Chawal ki kheer or rice kheer is one of the most made sweet dishes in many Indian homes. It is flavoured with cardamom, raisins, saffron, cashews, pistachios or almonds.
Sharad Purnima has its special importance in Hindu traditions. It is the harvest festival celebrated on full moon day of Ashwin, marking the end of Indian Monsoon and starting of the winter season.
It is also believed that Amrit (Nectar) drips on planet earth on this day. Therefore the moonlight on Sharad Purnima is believed to possess amazing medicinal and nourishing properties. People make kheer or milk rice and place it under the open sky to absorb the moon light throughout the night and consume it in the morning to get the miraculous powers of moonlight for health and happiness.
