Things to know about Kheer Recipe

The Indian Traditional Rice Pudding or Kheer is a dessert made by boiling milk, sugar, and rice. Topped with nuts, this sweet is served after meals. The word “Kheer” is derived from the Sanskrit word “Ksheer” which means “milk”. Though the origin of Kheer is not fully known, a similar dish called “Sheer birinj” which means “rice pudding” existed in Persia.

The dish is quite popular in North India but is also consumed elsewhere in India. Kheer is not difficult to make but constant stirring throughout the making of the dish is important. The dish is not only consumed on important occasions but can also be served after lunch or dinner.
