I LOVE kheer. It’s an extremely popular dessert that is guaranteed to be made in every Pakistani and Indian household. Kheer is an Indian rice pudding dessert that is made with three basic ingredients – rice, milk, and sugar.

There are optional extras such as the raisins that you can if you want to. However, the kheer still tastes delicious even without any other additions. You can add in a wide variety of other ingredients such as dried fruits or chopped nuts.

In terms of flavouring, you could flavour the kheer with many different things to make it even more delicious! Cardamom powder is a common flavouring and lots of recipes use it.

Another popular flavouring is rose syrup and even a small splash of it will go a long way in adding bounds of flavour and flowery aroma. A not-so-common flavouring is saffron. It adds a beautiful colour and fragrance. Perfect for special occasions when you really want to impress the guests.

I like to use whole milk in my kheer. This makes the kheer richer and creamier. However, for a healthier alternative you could use low-fat milk. This rice dessert can even be made vegan! Simply replace the milk with almond milk or oat milk. It will be just as tasty!

Rice Kheer is a traditional Indian dessert perfect for special occasions. This creamy and rich Indian rice pudding is made with three basic ingredients that you are guaranteed to find in your kitchen – rice, milk, and sugar.

Can basmati rice be used, or does it have to be regular white rice?
