Rice Kheer Recipe, How To Make Rice Kheer Recipe

Kheer is a rice pudding from the cuisine of the Indian Subcontinent, made by boiling rice, broken wheat, tapioca, or vermicelli with milk and sugar; it is flavoured with cardamom, raisins, saffron, cashews, pistachios or almonds. It is typically served during a meal or as a dessert. It is also known in some regions as payasam, payas, gil-e-firdaus and firni.

It is an excellent dessert that is served after the main course. Rice kheer is one of my signature dish. I make it on special occasions such as birthdays, diwali, holi, new year feast etc and my family especially my brothers love it. I have tried various types of kheer -rice, vermicelli, carrot etc. I use the same technique in all with a few changes in the ingredients.

Ingredients used in Rice Kheer
• Basmati rice - 1 cup.
• Milk - 500 ml.
• Cardamom - 6-7 numbers.
• Cloves - 4 numbers.
• Bay leaf - 1 leaf.
• Saffron - 1 0.
• Paneer balls soaked in syrup (optional) - 3 piece.
• Condensed miok (optional) - half cup.
• Cashew nuts (chopped) - 6-7 numbers.
• Almond (finely sliced) - 5-6 numbers.
• Raisins - 5-6 numbers.
• Sugar - 3 teaspoons.
• Ghee - 2 tablespoons.
• Cardamom powder - half teaspoons.
  • Rinse and soak basmati rice in water for minimum 30 minutes.
  • Heat ghee in a saucepan and add cardamom, cloves and bay leaf.
  • Drain the rice using a strainer. When the oil starts fragrancing add the nuts and dry fruits and stir fry for a few seconds on a low flame till they turn light golden in colour. Keep them aside.
  • Add the rice to the ghee and stir fry for a few seconds and keep it aside.
  • Now add the milk to the same saucepan and bring it to a boil. Add the rice to the milk and let it cook on a low flame.
  • Once the rice is more than halfway done, add a few strands of saffron, cardamom powder and roasted nuts and dry fruits. Add condensed milk and sugar to taste. Stir well.
  • Check the consistency. We do not intend the kheer to be too watery or too thick. If the kheer is too thick add a few drops of water.
  • Break the paneer ball into small pieces and add it to the kheer. Switch off the flame, place the kheer in a bowl and garnish with sliced nuts and raisins.

Now the rice kheer is ready to serve hot, warm or cold. Hope you enjoyed the recipe.

Why would we add cloves and bay leaf in a kheer?
