Annam Parvanam | Rice Kheer

Rice Kheer
Annam Parvanam / Rice Kheer is one of well known prashad dishes. This is creamy, perfectly sweet & topped with goodness of ghee along with nuts & raisins. You can customize this recipe as you like, say you can substitute 1/2 of milk with lite & thin coconut milk to make it more flavorful.
I'm following a pattern in making Navratri recipes from today on. I have read an article online & they listed out the prashad that should be offered on daily basis. For the 4th day it is Annam Parvanam/Rice Kheer made of sugar & jaggery or sweet pongal should be offered to the goddess.
