Rice Kheer

Kheer is the most desired dessert after a healthy, spicy Indian meal. There are so many variations of it. Everything looks the same, but  the recipes are different. I learnt this dish from the cook, on house warming ceremony of my relative.


1) Ghee – 2 tablespoon 2) Sugar – 6 cups
3) Water – 2 glasses 4) Kheer rice or normal rice – 1 cup
5) Dry fruits 6) Milk – 1 liter
7) Kesar – 0.5 gms 8) cardamom powder- 2 tablespoon

1 cup  holds 250ml of water

Preparing time – 2hours

Cooking time – 30 mins


  1. I used kheer rice which is small in size and has a good smell. Clean it well and then soak in water for 2 hours.
  2. After 2 hours drain the water completely and crush the rice with your hands and keep aside.
  3. Start boiling milk. When it is boiled fully, take a cup of milk and let it cool. After it cools down, add kesar in it and keep it aside.
  4. In a shallow bowl, pour 2 tablespoon of ghee and heat it in a low flame. When it starts fuming, add 1 tablespoon of sugar and mix it well.
  5. After 5 minutes, add 1 cup of water. The same cup which was used to measure rice.
  6. Add the crushed rice in the boiling water, and slowly mix it with a spatula. Since it is soaked rice, it would hardly take 10 minutes to cook.
  7. When it is about to cook add the boiled milk in it and keep mixing
  8. After 15 minutes the rice is well cooked. Then add 6 cups of sugar and 2 tablespoon of cardamom powder and mix it well for 10 minutes in low flame.
  9. At this point you can have a good aroma and now add the kesar milk and mix it well.
  10. Fry the dry fruits in a tablespoon of ghee in a pan and mix it at the end.

This dish can be tried with suji too.
