Rice kheer or Nei payasam is served in temples as a prasadam. Very easy and quick to make and tastes so so divine!! Traditionally, Kerala broken rice is used but today i have used basmati rice.
Start by boiling 1 cup of jaggery with 1 cup of water. Strain the water if there are any impurities.
Add 3/4th cup of half cooked rice and allow it to cook. In few minutes, it thickens and the rice will be cooked fully.
Add 2 tbsp ghee, 1/2 tsp freshly crushed cardamom and 1/2tsp dried ginger powder. Give it a mix.
Add 1 cup of freshly grated coconut or the frozen one. Turn off the gas. Garnish with nuts of your choice. Serve warm.
