Rice Kheer

Kheer is also known as Payasam (Tamil) or Payesh (Bengali) is a rice pudding, which is a traditional South Asian Sweet Dish.
Kheer is prepared during festivals, special occasions or on marriages. The main ingredients are rice, milk, sugar/jaggery  garnished by lots of dry fruits like pistachio, raisins, cashew nuts, almonds.
This dish is often made with rice but you can also make this with sago (sabudana) or vermicelli (sevyian)

Ingredients:
1 cup rice
1 ltr milk
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp of ghee
1/2 tsp cardamon powder
Dry fruits ( almonds, cashew, raisins, pistachio without salt)

Method:

  • Wash, clean rice, cook it in pressure cooker with 1 1/2 glass of water. Give 2 whistles and then remove from fire.
  • When pressure drops. Open the lid.
  • Add milk and cook on low flame for 10-15 mins.
  • Keep stirring in between.
  • Add sugar, cardamon powder and ghee. Mix well and cook till sugar dissolves.
  • Keep stirring in between.
  • Check the desired consistency on the kheer.
  • Add dry fruits. Mix well.
  • Remove from fire.
  • Garnish with chopped almonds.
  • Serve hot or cold (your choice)



Note:- You can cook the kheer with leftover rice too (if you not added salt while making the rice)
Cooking kheer with cooked rice is very easy and simple way of cooking with no hassle.

@ Pooja.....If you want to make this with sago(sabudana) then wash the sago and soak it in 2 tbsp of water overnight...Next day it will be double in size. Don't cook it in pressure cooker. Boil milk, add sago and cook for 10-15 mins.
Add sugar and follow the remaining step of rice kheer :-)
Hope this will help you !!!
