Rice Kheer Recipe – Indian Rice Pudding

Indians love dessert and that’s the reason there are tons of homemade dessert recipes that belong to India. Every state has it’s own specialty. For example, Andhra Pradesh has Qubani ka Meetha, Bihar has Khaja, Gujarat offers Basundi and Punjab serves Pinni, etc.

Now there one such dessert that is cooked and consumed quite often. Every household cooks it differently yet it tastes absolutely yummy. It is none other than Kheer. It is also called meetha bhaat, payasam, payasa, or dudhpak.

So here is my ode recipe to the kheer. Cooked slowly in full-fat milk, it has a creamy and rich texture. And cardamom and added dry fruits further enhance the taste and experience.

Other kheer recipes that you must try are Makhane ki kheer, Poha Kheer and Seviyan Kheer.
