When the milk starts boiling, mix rice into it. Stir the kheer with a ladle and after one simmer, reduce the flame. Keep stirring for every 1 to 2 minutes. This is to prevent milk from catching at the bottom. 

Take ½ cup water and jaggery in another vessel and place it on flame for heating. When the jaggery dissolves in water, turn off the flame.
