the rice kheer is known by different names. in north india, this dessert is called as rice kheer, in south india it is called as payasam, while in the west, it is called as rice pudding. rice kheer is served as a dessert in many other countries including the middle-east, south-east regions. the flavoring ingredients that they use are the ones locally available and vary from one place to place.

the difference in the indian rice kheer and the western rice pudding is use of different flavoring agents. the flavoring agents used in India for rice kheer are cardamom powder, saffron and dry fruits like raisins, almonds, cashews are added. whereas the flavoring agents used in the west are vanilla essence, cinnamon powder. raisins are also added. in this recipe salt is also added. some folks even add eggs whilst some top it with whipped cream while serving.

the rice kheer that i made, used some of the spices mentioned above and the kheer turned out to be an creamy and delicious, which everyone in my family liked. i made this recipe from leftover basmati rice. you could either use leftover rice or cook some rice and then use it.
