Rice Kheer is a very famous Indian dessert which would be served in Parties and restaurants. It taste delicious, not very strong sweetness attracts even non-sweet lovers. It’s very easy to make in home and the recipes follows as boiling the milk, allow it to thicken and add rice, nuts. Even cooked rice or left over rice can also be used in the recipe.
This can be served either chilled or hot. I like it to be served chill.
