Muskmelon rice pudding is a refreshing and delicious dessert that can be served after any meal. This is thick creamy kheer that gives a twist with the unique taste and flavor of melon. This is different way to enjoy muskmelon other than the normal juice and definitely kids friendly recipe. I saw this recipe in manjula’s kitchen and wanted to try it immediately. I have used cooked rice to this recipe so this is again the best way to utilize left over rice.
