Indian rice kheer recipe (as known in North India)or Indian rice pudding recipe also known as rice payasam or ari payasam in South India is a very delicious and easy to make rice kheer recipe which is a one pot pudding dessert recipe too.
Vermicelli kheer is another very delicious Indian dessert poularly used for special occasions.
You can make this yummy rice pudding or rice kheer using milkmaid on a pan without using pressure cooker.
Just make sure to use a thick bottomed pan or pot that can contain the amount of kheer you are intending to make.
I have also adjusted the ingredients so I can use one cup of rice to make the kheer – so I had to add more milk and sugar ( in my previous post on rice kheer using milkmaid, I used only 1/2 cup of rice).
Alternatively, you can also use 2 cans of milkmaid and follow the measurements of ingredients in my previous post on rice kheer using milmaid.
I had only one can of condensed milk on hand, so I added more milk and sugar to make the kheer. Otherwise also, I think its good to keep extra sugar and milk so you can adjust the sweetness and consistency of the kheer based on your preference, because the kheer tends to thicken as it cools down and often it needs to be thinned down with extra milk.
If you need to make more kheer, please adjust the ingredients accordingly ( you will need more milk and sugar if you increase the amount of rice).
How To Make Rice Kheer Without Pressure Cooker
- Heat a thick bottomed wide pan or pot, add the ghee. Add the washed rice and saute for a minute.
- Add the sugar and whole milk to the rice, stir well and wait for the milk rice mixture to boil – make sure you stir constantly to avoid any burning of milk at the bottom of the pan.
- As the mixture starts boiling, close the pan and cook in very low heat for about 10 minutes.
- After 10 minutes, open the pan, stir the contents and add the sweetened condensed milk.
- Stir and boil for about 1 to 2 minutes till all the ingredients are combined well. Serve hot or chilled, you may also add cashews and raisins fried in little ghee to the kheer if you wish.
