Rice Kheer / Indian Rice Pudding

Kheer or Payasam is Indian Pudding which is prepared mostly during festive Seasons, and I prepared rice kheer today to celebrate Holi, the  Festival of colors. 
Rice kheer is one of the popular desserts recipe cooked in North India along with Phirni and seviya kheer(Vermicelli kheer). You can either prepare this kheer using cooked rice or uncooked rice. If you have any left over rice, then you can use them too, to prepare this kheer or payas.
The flavors are added using cardamom powder , nutmeg powder or cloves. Added nuts and raisins gives it extra crunch. So let’s see how to make rice kheer.
