Let’s talk about the Ingredients of Rice Kheer Recipe

Rice – Kheer can be prepared using vermicelli, sago etc. I have used basmati rice. I used whole basmati rice and soaked them. Thereafter I mashed them a little. You may use basmati churi i.e. the smaller and grainy rice.

Other ingredients – I have used ghee for roasting the rice to give it a rich look and a different taste. Apart from that, I heated milk in the microwave for 3 minutes before adding to the kheer. It helps in cooking kheer quickly. I have not added saffron. You may soak few saffron strands in lukewarm milk and add to the kheer. Since I like my desserts quite sweet, I have used 5 tbsp sugar. You may adjust as per your choice.

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!.
