Rice Kheer | Rice Pudding | Pal Payasam

Semolina / Semiya /Seviya kheer is my go to recipe since boys at home love it. This year for DH’s birthday I prepared rice kheer (some even call this pal payasam).

This recipe is from yet another famous food blogger. Everytime I check my instagram page, the posts from food bloggers just leave me craving for the delicious recipes. Sometimes the impulse is too strong that I end up trying it almost immediately. This is one of the reasons why I stopped checking insta after 7PM. No kidding, too much food pics keeps me drooling the whole night!

I followed the exact recipe from Sharmilee, except that I added lesser sugar than she had mentioned. This is because unlike me the boys at home do not like too much sugar.

This recipe takes time since we have to let the milk boil and get thick. But, the good thing is that we don’t have to stand next to it and keep on stirring. I whipped up this kheer while cooking lunch parallelly.
