Cooking Rice

In a pressure cooker add full-fat milk and rice, mix it well and close the cooker with a lid. Cook it at high flame until it gets 2 whistles then lower the flame to simmer for 5 minutes and turn off the flame, Let the pressure release naturally.

Open the cooker, mix the rice and milk mixture nicely. Rice grain is cooked then add in milk again. Again pressure cook it at low flame for 5 to 7 minutes then take the lid off and mix it again nicely as it may stick to the bottom.

(Note– Always keep an eye while cooking kheer as it has a slow cooking process, It is cooked until it becomes thick at low flame. So you need to stir it every now and then so it may not stick to the bottom or get burnt.)

Flavoring

Add cardamom powder in it and mix it well. Again cover and cook it at low flame for 5 to 7 minutes, make sure to stir it more often. you can cover the cooker with a plate or lid, don’t close it you only need to cover it.

(Note– After this stage, we will cover and cook the kheer at low flame for 3 to 4 times or until it becomes thick and stir it more often as well)

After 5 to 7 minutes take off the plate or a lid and add thick malai to it, again mix it well then cover and cook for another 5 to 7 minutes.

This kheer can be served warm or cold, top it with chopped dry fruits, and it’s ready to serve.
