Kesar Kheer

Kheer!!! The Indian rice pudding!!! We all love it chilled or hot!!!

Whenever I make kesar kheer I always make it in big quantity as in my home everyone fond of kheer. I love it chilled with low amount of sugar. Here in this recipe I am using condensed milk to make kheer but you can also use sugar, add sugar according to your taste and cook it little more to give creamy texture.
