Milk Kheer



Milk Kheer is a traditional Indian dessert made with milk, rice, sugar, and nuts. It is a creamy, sweet pudding that is often served during festivals and special occasions. Milk Kheer is made by boiling milk and rice together until the rice is cooked and the milk has thickened. Sugar and nuts are then added to the mixture, and the kheer is cooked until it reaches a thick, creamy consistency. Milk Kheer is often garnished with almonds, pistachios, or raisins. It can be served hot or cold, and is a popular dessert in India.
