Just that you need to keep a check when the kheer is simmering and stir it at intervals. This is an easy slow-cooked recipe and does not demand much cooking skills.

Some Notes :

  • you can use sugar-free sweeteners and add them to the kheer once its done.
  • You can use jaggery. But add jaggery only after the rice kheer is done and cooled a little.
  • With brown sugar, also follow the same method as that for jaggery.
  • One can use even Condensed Milk in the recipe. Add condensed milk once rice is cooked fully. Don’t add Sugar when adding condensed milk.
  • You can easily make chocolate rice kheer with this recipe. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons cocoa powder or add grated chocolate once the kheer is cooked..
