Tips for mango vermicelli kheer:
- You can serve this kheer at room temperature or chilled.
- You can also use the same way to make mango rice kheer.
- There is no need to add cardamom/ cinnamon etc for added flavour. But you can add if you like.
- We want mango to give the prominent flavour, so no other spice has been added.
- Always add the sugar at the end when vermicelli/ rice is cooked and rice has reduced. If you add sugar earlier, it will take way longer to cook.
- Make sure that the mango that you use is not at all sour, else the kheer may spilt.
