Tips to Rice Kheer

  • Soak rice for a few minutes before cooking to ensure even cooking and a smoother texture.
  • Cook the pudding on medium-low heat to prevent the milk from burning.
  • Stir frequently while cooking, as mentioned in the Rice Kheer recipe, to prevent rice from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  • Pinch a rice grain to check if it is cooked. If it mashes easily, it is cooked fully.
  • Sprinkle chopped cashews, raisins, and almonds on top, or garnish with edible silver leaf or rose petals for a festive touch. Toast the nuts for extra crunch before adding them to the Rice Kheer.
  • Let the chawal kheer cool slightly before serving to allow flavours to meld and thicken further.
