Kheer recipe - Indian sweet recipe

A kheer recipe is one of the many indian sweet recipes given. Kheer is a popular Indian sweet. It is also called as - payash, payasa, payasam' in Indian languages. Kheer is simple and easy to make.

Most of the kheers are milk based but for some of the south Indian payasam recipes, milk is not necessary. Of course you may add it if you like. You can also use coconut milk instead of dairy milk.

Kheer is healthy indian sweet as no deep frying is involved.

Kheer or payasam generally has a consistency of porridge. But it can be made as thick or thin as you like.

Poppy seeds kheer (Ghasgase payasa) is generally made very thin.

You can keep it plain or make it as rich as you like with the addition of nuts like pistachio, almonds etc.
