BM #98 Week 3 Day 1 - 

This week I shall showcase some easy festival dishes. Today's kheer / payasam is an easy and quick one to prepare in a jiffy. now that summer is around the corner and we would be flush with ripe mangoes, I thought this kheer might be a good way to start the festival er.. mango season.

I came up with this combination as I had a little of store bought sugar free mango pulp in my refrigerator and I started with just sooji and half way through I realized that I had added too much of milk and the kheer was very runny. So I added semiya and then almond flour to thicken the kheer. 

The kheer turned out so good that the sweet lovers at home had a great time. I am so looking forward to try it out with fresh mangoes this season..

Ingredients - 

Milk 1 1/2 cup
Semiya 2 Tbsp
Sooji / Rava 1 Tbsp
Almond Flour 2 Tbsp
Sugar 2 Tbsp (or to taste)
Mango Pulp 2 Tbsp
MTR Badam Powder 1 tsp

Method Of Preparation -

Boil milk either in the microwave or on stove top. In a different pan, boil water and cook semiya.

After the semiya is cooked, drain most of the water retaining about 1/2 cup of water. Transfer the semiya and the 1/2 cup of water into the simmering milk.

Add roasted rava, almond flour, sugar and MTR Badam Powder. Let it simmer and cook well for about 4-5 minutes.

Remove from heat. Allow it to cool for about 5-10 minutes. Mix in the mango pulp and garnish with roasted nuts.

Serve warm or cold. [Please note that the kheer thickens as it cools down.]


Preparation Time 15 minutes + 10 minutes cooling time
Makes 2 cups
