This particular recipe is a delicious twist on traditional kheer because of the inclusion of vanilla and Cadbury cocoa powder. It gravitates more towards the definition of rice pudding, but the result is just as delicious.

Kheer holds a special place in every Indian household. You may know it by other names like payasam, payesh, ksheeram or even doodhpak. Essentially, it's a perfect medley of soft rice (or alternatives like barley, paneer or pumpkin) in a rich spiced milk that is full of nuts and dried fruits. Some recipes sweeten it with jaggery, which also lends it a light brown hue, while others use plain white sugar or artificial sweeteners, when cooking for those with diabetes.

For the Recipe

  • 1 liter (around 4 ½ cups) of whole milk
  • 4 tbsp of Cadbury cocoa powder mix
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • 2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp of instant coffee
  • ¼ cup of sona masoori rice
  • Chopped nuts (for topping)



Thoroughly wash the rice and drain excess water. Set aside.


In a saucepan, bring milk to a boil and simmer until it reduces to ¾ of its original volume.


Add the rice to the milk and cook on low heat until it achieves a thick consistency and the rice is fully cooked. Keep stirring to avoid the rice sticking to the sides and the bottom.


Now mix in Cadbury cocoa powder, instant coffee and vanilla extract into the rice and milk pudding, stirring until everything is dissolved.


Once you’ve achieved the desired consistency, incorporate sugar and continue cooking for an additional 5 minutes. Ensure that the sugar is completely incorporated into the kheer.


Transfer the kheer into two serving bowls and allow the mixture to cool in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to an hour.


Garnish with chopped nuts before serving the chilled dessert.


Ensure the rice is well-washed for optimal results and adjust the sugar quantity to suit your taste preferences.

You can also use plant free milk alternatives if you want to make a vegan-friendly kheer.

On top of this, you can also sweeten the kheer with coconut sugar, jaggery, stevia or any other sweetener that is better for those who have diabetes or just do not want to raise their blood sugar levels.

You can have this kheer as soon as it's off the stove during the winter, but traditionally a cool bowl of this dessert will really do the trick of satiating your sugar cravings.

If you're unable to find sona masoori rice, Basmati rice serves as an excellent alternative. Additionally, kolam rice, a medium-grain variety, can be a good substitute and yield an equally delightful outcome.

To expedite the cooking process and avoid waiting for the milk to reduce to ¾ of its original volume, consider using condensed milk to thicken the kheer. You will have to omit the sugar, as condensed milk will provide sufficient sweetness to the dish.
