Kheers / Payasam, Sevai, Sizzling Tastebuds

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 feelingJI 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.
