INDIANS AND KHEER


We Indians have a soft corner for kheer, one of the most common and popular homemade dessert made with love and lots of effort and eaten till the heart's content. Whether there is a small prayer in the house or celebrating festivals such as Diwali, Holi, Raksha Bandhan or Navratri or just having small get together with the family there will be a plenty of bowls of Kheer with Poori vanishing in the thin air. Kheer is such a delightful soothing and soft dessert that anyone can enjoy no matter if a baby or 80 years old.

TRADITIONAL METHOD FOR CHAWAL KI KHEER - RICE PUDDING


Kheer is a fairly simple dessert to make but needs a good amount of time, energy and concentration. It is a slow-cooked dish that you don't want to shift your attention for even a few minutes from it, else you'll see a nothing but a burnt mess. Traditional Kheer is made over the stove by boiling whole milk, then soaked rice and sugar added and simmered till you get thick and creamy kheer. It can be flavoured with cardamom, actually, cardamom helps in digesting the rich and heavy foods. It is finally garnished with the chopped nuts of your choice.

STOVETOP PRESSURE COOKER KHEER


Since the stovetop pressure cooker, a handy and useful kitchen gadget for every cook in India, arrived in our homes with its recipe books, there was one recipe which caught everyone's attention, it was Kheer. I clearly remember when my mum bought a Hawkins pressure cooker 6litre one, she prepared a kheer using this pressure cooker and could not praise it enough, since then the only way she made kheer was always in a pressure cooker. So obviously, I picked up that method too. One may have a question about the taste and texture, but this pressure cooker method kheer tastes as delicious as the traditional one, it's creamy, rich and irresistible only with minimal efforts, just eliminate sweat and stress, no slaving over the stove and stirring for hours. Don't you think it's a win-win situation for you guys!

RICE FOR KHEER


While the western world uses short grain rice such as rice pudding rice or arborio, for Kheer Indians use mostly Basmati rice, although some prefer short grain rice with Indian varieties such as Gobindbhog rice which is short grain, sticky and aromatic.

SUGAR OR CONDENSED MILK


For kheer, it works both, but I prefer sugar. somehow with sugar, the original taste retains same. Some use both so really whatever is your preference.

VEGAN KHEER


Use any plant-based milk and omit ghee. Also, use vegan sugar.

WHAT SIZE PRESSURE COOKER WILL I NEED


You'll need a 5litre pressure cooker to make kheer for 4 people. Try not to use a small pressure cooker as there is a chance that the milk mixture will overflow.

INGREDIENTS FOR KHEER


Rice - A staple ingredient can be found in any kitchen. For this recipe Basmati is perfect but if you don't have any other white rice would do the job.

Milk - For a rich and creamy taste and texture whole milk required but if you don't have it then semi-skimmed or skimmed will do the job, you may want to add single or double cream or evaporated milk works so well too.

Sugar - Normal granulated sugar.

Spices and Nuts

To enhances flavour the kheer you will need aromatic spices such as cardamom and saffron ( I don't like to add saffron while kheer is cooking, but like to garnish with it. ) Almonds, pistachio, or cashew nuts are perfect. Some people fry the nuts but I like to add raw.

Now that you have this delightful dessert recipe and that too with a fuss-free method, don't hesitate to whip it up at the last minute for any festivities, for unexpected guests or when you crave for something sweet!


LET'S COOK KHEER IN PRESSURE COOKER - Method 1

Add ghee, sugar and washed rice and stir the mixture till sugar dissolves in the milk.
Close the cooker with the lid and bring it up to full pressure, reduced heat to low and cook for 10-12 minutes.

Place the cooker once again on a heat and simmer ( without the lid)  the kheer for a couple of minutes more or until it reaches a creamy consistency.
