Black rice kheer
Healthy and tasty kheer or payasam recipe with black rice, coconut milk, and coconut sugar.
Coconut Sugar or Palm Sugar
Soak black rice for 8 hours or overnight.
Drain the water from soaked rice and wash it thoroughly.
Add 1 cup water to washed rice and cook like regular rice. It took around 15 minutes for me on the stove top. Rice can be cooked in the pressure cooker as well.
Mash the cooked rice with a potato masher. Add cardamom powder, coconut sugar, coconut milk and mix everything well.
This kheer can be served hot or cold. If you wish to serve hot, boil it for 5 minutes and it will be ready to serve. Else, refrigerate and serve the kheer when it is cooled enough.
You can use nutmeg or vanilla beans as well for flavoring the kheer.
