Indian Desserts : Rice Kheer | Doodh Paak | Rice Payasam Recipe

Rice Kheer also known as rice pudding, is an important and traditional Indian sweet dish. Rice Kheer is a classic dessert, very traditional to the Indian subcontinent.  Here is a very quick and easy rice kheer recipe. A great way to use left-over rice.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes including time for preparation of Rice

Servings: 4

  • 500 ml Milk
  • 250 gms Rice
  • 200 gms Sugar
  • 50 gms ghee 
  • 3 table spoon chopped nuts 
  • Pick and wash the rice.
  • Soak in water for 30 minutes.
  • Drain completely.
  • Melt the ghee in a pan, add the drained rice and saute for 5-7 minutes on a medium flame.
  • Add milk and cook on a low flame till the milk is reduced to 3/4th its original quantity.
  • Add the sugar and simmer further till the milk is reduced to half its original quantity.
  • Garnish with nuts roasted in ghee.

PS:  We could use the left over rice as well. If that’s is the case, just add rice in a kadai and use half the quantity of milk (that is 250 ml). And follow the same procedure. Beleave me, one cant guess the used rice is left over rice. :)
