When I saw the ingredient for JFI event in vineela’s cuisine the first thing that came into my mind was ‘sweets’. Yes milk and milk products always remind me of sweets somehow.
Iam posting a simple but very tasty , easy to cook recipe of KHEER.
I learnt this recipe from one of my friend.One reason I like in this recipe is, it is made without ghee, but still tastes rich. Try out this and let me know.


Whole Milk-6 cups
Sugar-3/4th cup
Basmathi rice-1/4th cup
Cashews-15 to 20
Raisins – a few
Coconut grated -2 tsp


Boil the milk in a thick bottomed pan.(It is better not to do this in a non stick pan as milk becomes brown at the bottom of the pan ) if u do not have a thick bottomed pan use a pressure cooker.
Grind the basmathi rice in the mixer( do not grind it finely. Grind it very very coarsely. Just one turn of the mixer and that is enough. Basically the rice should be broken
Into two..)
Add the rice , cashews , raisins and coconut to the boiling milk.
Keep in a medium flame for 15 minutes,partly covered and stirring in between.
After 15 to 20 mins the milk would have become thick and rice would have been cooked. Check for it.
Finally add the sugar . keep in flame 3 to 5 mins till the sugar dissolves completely and remove from fire.
Cool it and refrigerate it.
Serve chilled.


Serve this chilled. This tastes yummy when it is cold than warm.
U can use condensed milk instead of sugar too..
