  1. Hi Dassana. .The kheer came out v well.Wanted to ask if I can use milkmaid (condensed milk) along with milk?.

    • neetu, you can easily use milkmaid along with milk. in this scenario, do not add sugar. for 1/2 cup of condensed milk, you can use 2 to 2.5 cups of milk. just add more milk if the kheer becomes very sweet.

  2. I don’t have saffron but i want to try the recipe anyway.. Can saffron threads be skipped..? Will it change the taste of the kheer..? 😊😊😊

  3. Thanks for yur reply.Mayb the pan was too hot …anyhow i tried it again ,this time it came out perfect.Thanks for everything??

  4. Tried making it ,Though came out well but the moment i put the corn paste in the pan it became sticky n had lumps …pls guide .

    • hmmm… was the pan very hot. a paste should not form into a lump immediately, when you add it, unless the pan is very hot. when you must have added the milk, the lumps were dissolved or were they still there.

  5. Hi,
    Tried this kheer today. It was so yum. Have never imagined sweet corn in kheer. Very innovative?
