Kheer/Payassam is one of India's traditional sweet dish made for festive occasion or any special day.
Kheer is one of my favourite sweet dish. Its made with rice and milk with some sugar and dry fruits.It taste good hot or cold.I have added  saffron to this kheer which gives the kheer a beautiful colour and the aroma is just beyond compare.
The sweetness can be adjusted according to ones taste.
