Recipe Notes

Notes-

Use only low flame for the entire process, in order to avoid the kheer from getting burnt.

Pressure cooking will ensure that the rice cooks sooner and the milk too  starts to thicken faster by this method .

I used regular milk. In case you use full cream milk, pressure cook only once.
