  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.
