Kheer

Kheer (Sanskrit: Payasam, Oriya: Kheeri) is a traditional dish in the Indian subcontinent, a rice pudding typically made by boiling rice with milk and sugar. It is often flavored with cardamoms and pistachios.

Term Payasam is a Sanskrit word stands for Nector and is derived from "Peeyusham" which is also called " Amrutham". Kheer is also from Sanskrit word "Ksheer" which means Milk. It is an essential dish in many Hindu and Muslim feasts and celebrations in South Asia. While the dish is traditionally made with rice, it can also be made with other ingredients such as vermicelli (semiya). The recipe for the popular English rice pudding was, in fact, derived from kheer when Britain had occupied India. Ultimately, kheer can be traced back to an ancient dish from Puri.
