Rice Kheer - Rice Pudding From India
Rice Kheer is a very popular dessert across India. In
South India, jaggery is widely used as a sweetener.
Jaggery is available in Indian grocery stores. You can cut jaggery into smaller pieces before using it. Sometimes, packets of jaggery pieces are also sold in Indian grocery stores.
