Procedure for preparing Rice Kheer
Wash rice and pressure cook with water for 10 minutes (or cook on low flame till rice tender and softens). Smash rice with the bottom of big spoon.
Add sugar. sautÃ© for 5 minutes and then add dry milk powder, stirring continuously till the kheer reaches a desired consistency. Remove from heat.
Garnish with kaju. It can be served hot or cold.
Note that kheer served cold tastes less sweet than hot kheer and so you may need to add slightly more Sugar if planning to serve it cold.
