KHEER/Rice pudding/How to make kheer


This looks like a simple and plain dish,don’t go on the looks,they taste heavenly.Especially when it’s cooked on open flame with the milk n rice being cooked for an hour,all the flavours has been soaked by the rice in this cooking process.In India,kheer is also bhog or prasad(offering) to god on diwali and amavasya,in short…. any festival.So lets see what goes in making this yummy and tasty kheer


1 liter milk

1/2 cup basmati rice(any rice will do)

1/2 cup sugar(or as per taste)

1 tablespoon elaichi powder(cardamom)

2 tablespoon chopped dry fruits(kaju,pista and badam or any prefered)

1 tablespoon rice flour(this is optional)


Take big bowl pour milk in it and let it boil for 10 to 15 minutes on low flame,keep stirring or milk may overflow

Wash the rice and keep aside

After 15 minutes,add the washed rice in the milk and let it cook for 20 to 25 minutes or till the rice is cooked well

Once you see the rice is cooked add the rice flour,dry fruits and elaichi powder

Stir it well,no lumps should remain

Last you add sugar as per taste

Serve it chilled or hot,as your family and loved ones would prefer to eat

NOTE:Rice flour is optional,it thickens the kheer

I like my kheer thick,if you prefer you can add more milk or leave the rice flour option for a thin consistence
