kheer recipe is a common and easy dessert made in most of indian households. it is perhaps one such dish made and attempted by almost all age groups. having said that, the vermicelli kheer takes the precedence and takes first priority as it does not require any preparations with vermicelli. in other words, you have to soak the rice and cook rice in milk which would eventually take longer time to make the rice kheer. but in terms of taste and creaminess, none can beat the rice kheer recipe. as a matter of fact the kheer made from rice has different variations too. basically, this is a south indian way of making the rice kheer and i am hoping to make the chawal ki kheer – a north indian kheer recipe soon. there isn’t much difference anyway, but still, i would post it as a separate recipe with a video.

anyway, i would like to highlight some tips, variations and suggestions for a creamy and rich pal payasam recipe or rice kheer recipe. firstly, i would like to have my rice grains short for this kheer recipe. hence it is better to stick to sona masuri or any other small grain rice. avoid basmati rice for this recipe if possible. secondly, avoid skim milk for this recipe and use full cream milk as it would result in more creamy and rich kheer. as an alternative, you can add coconut milk to the kheer to make it even creamier. lastly, you can make the same recipe by adding jaggery instead of sugar. adding jaggery would make it healthy but would change the colour to brownish in colour.

finally, i would like to highlight my other indian classic dessert recipes collection with this post of pal payasam recipe or rice kheer recipe. it includes recipes like vermicelli kheer, carrot kheer, badam kheer, fruit salad with ice cream, rasmalai, fruit custard, caramel custard and basundi recipe. in addition, do visit my other traditional recipes collection like,

notes:

  • firstly, soaking the rice helps to cook rice easily.
  • also, adjust the consistency of kheer just before serving as it thickens once cooled.
  • additionally, boil the milk on medium flame to prevent from burning.
  • finally, add condensed milk in place of sugar to hasten the rice kheer or paal payasam recipe.
