Kṣīraudana (क्षीरौदन) refers to “milk boiled rice”, and is commonly found in literature dealing with the topics of dietetics and culinary art, also known as Pākaśāstra or Pākakalā.—The discussions on rice can be seen only in post-Ṛgvedic literature. [...] Parivāpa and Puroḍāśa are the Vedic offerings made from rice. Parivāpa is prepared from parched rice fried in butter. Puroḍāśa is a rice-cake. The term odana has been used even from the Vedic period to signify the boiled rice. Atharvaveda refers to the milk boiled rice as kṣīra-odana. [...] Towards the period of Upaniṣads, different varieties of food items were prepared with rice and are named as [...] kṣīraudana (cooked rice mixed with milk), [...] Thus we can say that the Upaniṣadic people have done varieties of experimentations of rice and are aware about the different rice preparations.
