Indian Kheer 印式米飯布丁 rice pudding is a pudding-like dessert in the Indian subcontinent, usually made by simmering milk, sugar, and rice. There are several versions of kheer, some using jaggery instead of sugar or substituting rice with bulgur wheat, millet, sai mai lo, or vermicelli. Another name for Indian rice puddings is Pasayam, which is more common to South India.
Other types of kheer are Daliya with broken wheat, Seviya with vermicelli, Poha Kheer with flattened rice, and more.
Kheer can be found at weddings or at festivals like Diwali. It’s especially cooling after a spicy meal and isn’t too heavy or sweet like many other Indian desserts.
