Easy Rice Pudding (Rice Kheer)

Rice Pudding

Rice pudding or rice kheer is a simple recipe and prepared in a single step. Take small grain rice for pudding as those are easier to cook. If you are using long grain rice then soak them for some time and coarsely whip them for once. Add lots of dry fruits to it. To make it thicker add condensed milk but careful of adding sugar as condensed milk is already sweet. However I have not added condensed milk here. It’s simple, satisfying and takes hardly 30 minutes.

In India this pudding has religious link as well. It’s considered auspicious and offered to God Goddess on special occasions and celebrations. This is classic authentic way rice pudding.
