What is Kheer?

Kheer is an Indian pudding where rice is cooked with milk until creamy texture. Traditionally kheer is seasoned with cardamom and saffron.

Kheer made by simmering rice and milk in heavy pot or big vessels for a long time, this kheer has a rich, creamy taste and attractive pink colour that comes out of the common thickening of milk.

But if mangoes are in season, there is nothing like making it using the fresh puree. If using canned puree, make sure to use either kesar or alphonso variety.

Here are some Mango recipes, that you can make this Summer – Mango Ice Cream, Mango Mastani, Mango Lassi, Mango PapadMango Aamras and Rose Mango Lassi.

Also make sure to adjust the amount of sugar, as the canned puree is on the sweeter side. I have used about 1/4 cup of  as my mango puree is sweet. If your mangoes is not sweet increase the amount of sugar in to your kheer.
