Sama Rice Kheer | Sama Rice Pudding

I would say it’s a late post as this dessert is generally enjoyed during the fast or navratri. Sama or Samak or Samvat or Vrat Rice is usually used to make dessert or pulao on the day of fasting. This time I am sharing the recipe of kheer and this is equally luscious as traditional rice kheer. An easy recipe.

Also try: Rice Kheer or Seviyan Kheer.
