Rice Kheer ( Microwave Recipe)

A traditional recipe very popular especially in south India, where it is made on festival days and weddings too. While the original method involves slow-cooking the rice in milk and continuing to cook till the milk thickens and turns pink, Rice Kheer with the same authentic flavour can be made easily in the microwave oven using condensed milk. Lose yourself in the rich taste of milk, and the creamy texture of the rice in it.
