Rice Kheer

Rice Kheer - Rich, creamy, aromatic kheer made with milk and rice.

Rice Kheer recipe

I mostly do this Rice Kheer when SS is at home for lunch. You could see his face brighten up every time I do this kheer. He is a big fan of Milk desserts and this is one of his favorites. Whenever I do this kheer, he will just limit his lunch to enjoy his 1 cup ( sometimes 2 cups :) ) of kheer!!

Nothing can match the smell of freshly ground cardamom in this kheer ...It just fills your home with wonderful aroma, that anybody who enters your home will come straight to the kitchen :) I have used basmati rice as basmati rice combined with cardamom adds a very subtle flavour.

Rice Kheer recipe

Rice Kheer is perfect for festivals and get together as they can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator.
Though this rice kheer takes a bit of time to make, it is a very simple recipe and does not demand your undivided attention the whole time. I always put this in a separate stove in simmer and do my rest of other cooking while stirring this occasionally.

Basmati Rice: 2 and 1/2 tbsp
White Sugar: 1/2 cup + 1 tsp

METHOD:
1) Wash the rice with water twice. Drain the water and keep aside. Heat milk in a sauce pan.

2)  When the milk is about to boil add the rice and give it a stir to ensure that no rice sticks at the bottom. Now simmer for about 1 hour or till it is reduced to about half its volume and the rice is cooked well ( Make sure to scrape the sides and stir occasionally )

3) The rice should be well cooked and split in the middle  as shown in the picture below. Now add  sugar and let it dissolve. In the meantime take cardamom with a tsp of sugar in mortar and pestle and make it to a fine powder.

NOTES:
1) Stir the kheer occasionally and make sure to scrape the sides too.
2) Leftover kheer can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
3) This rice kheer can be served hot or cold.
4) Slice the nuts as thinly as possible.
5) Sprinkle the nuts just before serving as this adds a nice contrast to the creamy kheer.

Cheers,
