How to make Red Rice Kheer / Sigappu Arisi Payasam

  1. Wash and soak red rice in water for 15 minutes. Drain the water and keep it aside.
  2. In a thick bottomed vessel or kadai, boil 1 cup of milk and 1 cup of water.
  3. Add soaked red rice, let it cook on low heat till rice is done. (Red rice takes longer time to get cooked than other rice varieties)
  4. Once the red rice is soft but firm in shape, add sugar and the remaining 4 cups of milk.
  5. Let it simmer till it reduces to half the quantity. Keep stirring in between and scrap the malai or cream at the sides of the vessel and add it to the boiling kheer.
  6. The whole process of making this kheer takes about 30 to 45 minutes on slow flame.
  7. When it thickens and looks creamy, add elaichi powder, roasted and chopped cashew and badam, melon seeds and raisins.
  8. Mix well. Remove from flame. Serve the red rice kheer warm or chilled.
My Tip: To reduce the cooking time, you can pressure cook red rice with 1 cup of water and 1 cup of milk and then condense it in kadai with remaining milk.
