The BEST Kheer with condensed milk!! This instant rice kheer recipe is made with cooked, leftover rice, milk, and sweetened condensed milk (aka milkmaid or mithai mate).
I have already shared the traditional rice kheer recipe. It is made from uncooked rice, milk and sugar. This traditional method is easy but little time consuming as we need to soak the rice for 20 minutes and cook it with milk for about 30 minutes. I usually make it this way because rice grains are cooked with milk, so it has absorbed the rich flavors.
But about a week ago, I made it with cooked rice. After making carrot burfi, I had leftover half a can of condensed milk in the fridge. So I used that as well in this recipe. The result was too good. I and hubby both liked the taste of it.
The condensed milk provides sweetness as well as makes the kheer creamy. Also, it is already thick, so we don’t need to boil for a longer time to get the right consistency. Hence it saves a lot of time.
The procedure of making this leftover rice kheer is very very simple. Just dump all the ingredients in a pan, mix it and simmer it for some time. That’s it, it is ready!!
