Badam Sevai Payasam | Almond and vermicelli Kheer or Pudding

Nuts and dry fruits are an integral part of our snack and both kids like it. Sometimes the husband (as all husbands, I think, who love to shop) goes a little overboard with buying these. So, I am literally left with a lot of nuts, and that’s not a nutty feeling J I do end up making pesto sometimes or the microwaved spiced nuts or add them to Ladoos. The elder one celebrated her birthday recently, and keeping in with a subdued celebration (according to her, a bigger party was in order) a Kheer was made for the morning before we went to the temple.  

So made this for a quick sweet treat to end the meal on her birthday. As promised in this week’s theme on BM : just 3 ingredients (excluding salt, sugar, oil) and you have a wonderful treat. Hope you enjoyed the series with Amrud ka Panha, Morkali and today’s Badam Sevai Kheer.
