kheer -

Kheer is a rice pudding which is one of the confectionery in South Asia made by boiling rice, wheat, tapioca, or vermicelli with milk and sugar.

This stew is then flavored by adding cardamom, raisins, kuma-kuma, guava monkey, pistacio, or almond. These puddings are usually served as dessert.

This food is also known in some areas under the name Payasam, Payasa, or Phirni, while in Bengal Payesh is one of Kheer's variations.
