Kheer Recipes

Kheer is a milky dessert made using milk, dry fruits, sugar, and rice. However, rice can be replaced with other ingredients such as vermicelli (sewaiyaan), sago (sabudana), etc and that’s what brings us here to the collection of kheer recipes. In South India, it is known as payasam and often coconut milk is used. The best thing that I like about kheer is that it can be served warm, at room temperature or chilled. Apart from that, it doesn’t ask for too much involvement. Just add in the ingredients and let it simmer with occasional stirring. Coconut milk is a very healthy ingredient and should be used for kheer recipes/payasam recipe. I shall soon put up a blog post on how to make coconut milk at home.
Kheer is all about perfect consistency and sweetness. And the choice of both varies from person to person. If you like your kheer creamy you can add homemade condensed milk to it. If you like it a bit grainy, you can add some homemade khoya or instant khoya. Condensed milk not only adds some texture to the kheer but also ads in some sweetness, therefore do not miss to adjust the quantity of sugar, if using condensed milk too.

Here is a collection of kheer recipes you can make for various occasions and festivals.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
