Today is Vat Savitri/Vat poornima.  It is similar to the Nombu, the South Indian ladies observe.   According to legend, great SAvitri tricked Lord Yama, the lord of death and compelled him to return the life of her husband Satyawan.    Hence, married women observe this for the well being and long life of their husband. 

Infact you do not need any reason to make any food items as,  if we want to eat, we can make it any time and no need to wait for any occasion or any guest coming home.

However, on the occasion of  Poornima and Vat Savitri, I prepared this kheer for neivedyam.

Let us look at the recipe now:

Today my blog is turning 3 years old.  I am thankful to all my viewers  for visiting the blog, their  valuable suggestions and support without which it would not have been possible for me to continue this lovely journey with the fond memories of my father in whose name I started the blog three years back.

I started this journey as a hobby and now I am very keen to improve the same and is on my way thought it will take some time for me to do so.  

On this day, I wanted to post a sweet recipe only and I chose to prepare the Angoori Kheer.  The angoor as made with home made paneer and it turned out well and liked by all.  This day is more important in my life as my son also completed his diploma in Television through a renowed college at Chennai and the convocation was on 3rd May and we returned from Chennai yesterday. 

Its a double whammy and I decided to make the kheer today and post it.  Actually I wanted to try the same with the grapes, but have no time to go to the market and get it as I am too tired to do so.

But you will definitely enjoy this version of kheer.  Now let us look at the recipe now:

Payasam or Kheer is liked  by every one.  I am bored of making the normal Paal Payasam, Nei Payasam, Vella Payasam etc. which are common in our house for the  festivals, Sumangali Prarthanai, Shradham etc.

I always make changes in our routine and try something different always for guests if they come to our house for lunch or dinner.

Today, I tried the carrot moongdal payasam and was a hit.  The preparation is very easy and the dish is very tasty too without much sugar added in it.

It tastes more yummy, when it is served chilled.

Let us look at the recipe now:

Today, I have invited my brothers and family for lunch.  Menu was decided by my daughter lauki partha, rice, sambar, payar thoran.  for dessert, mummy, I will leave it to you, she said.  I was bored of cooking the normal kheer viz. pal payasam, wheat payasam, ada pradhaman, semiya payasam  etc. etc.

I made dates chikoo milk shake and next day I tried the dates kheer too.  Somehow, I could not post the same as the photographs were lost due to fault in my camera.  Since I had the opportunity to make the dates kheer again, I thought I will post the same today itself.

I always crave for some sweets after my lunch and dinner.  I must atleast eat some sugar if I do not have any sweet items in store.  Today, while preparing oats porridge for my dear hubby, I thought I will make kheer out of oats.  There was a piece of red pumpkin after cutting  the veggies for Avial.  Hence made use of the pumpkin along with oats.  There was also a tablespoon of Pal theratipal (milk reduced).  everything mixed became a very tasty flavourful kheer which I am sharing with you. The addition of nuts make this kheer even more tasty.

Jack fruit seed kheer is very tasty and easy to prepare.  We make jack fruit kheer also.  The seeds can be used along  making mango, drumstick and make curry out of it, can be added to avial, make chips out of it.  It is a delicious kheer which can be served chilled.  see other posts in the blog of jackfruit and seeds.

I had bought one pack of jangri for the New Year yesterday.  Looking at that in the fridge, as no one was eating ( health conscious), thinking what to do with it.  Thought of making kheer out of it.  Tell you it was awesome when served chilled.

Today is Vishu.  Make this kheer and enjoy.

So why are u waiting?  Let us go to the kitchen to try this.

Today is the Tamil New year and tomorrow Vishu.  Wishing all viewers, friends and relatives a Very Happy New Year and Vishu.

Today, I prepared this kheer and was liked by everyone.  I was bored of cooking the normal kheer and want to cook something different.  I had made the Kanji and Venni  today which is made for the Vishu.  I was also having the tender coconut pulp after making the Mango tender coconut drink, so thought of combining these two things and making the kheer out of it.

Today I was having holiday, I thought of making it today itself as I have to hurry up tomorrow and may not be in a position to cook everything.

Enjoy the different variety of kheer.

I have already posted one kind of tender coconut kheer or elaneer payasam.  This is another method of preparing this lovely kheer.  This kheer has to be served cold, the taste is yummy.

Sweet items are always liked by everyone. When natural things are added to the dish, it has got a different taste and value for it nutritionally.  This natural summer cooler and healthy elaneer added to the roasted rice flour, milk is very delicious and would be a unique dish for your party.

Moongdal kheer is very easy to prepare and a nice sweet dish served during feasts or festivals.  Normally, the moongdal kanji is also known as paruppu kanji,  prepared during fast without adding  much sweet in it.  It can be prepared with sugar and milk and with jaggery and coconut milk.

Here I am presenting the second method i.e. with jaggery and coconut milk.

Paal payasam or milk and rice kheer is the favourite dish of Lord Krishna.  Ambalapuzha Paal Payasam is famous in Kerala.  Last year when I went to Kerala,  I got a chance to visit the temple and was truly blessed to witness the abishekam of Lord Krishna.

Paal payasm is made with rice, milk and sugar and I just love it.  I always make the same with Mahananda Milk I prefer that because it tastes awesome.  When you reduce the milk the colour changes and the taste of the dish is also yummy.

In Kerala, a vessel called uruli, see the picture below, the kheer is made it in it.

Today is International Women's day. Co - incidentally, our friends and neighbours decided to host the Kitty Party today.  Hence I decided to make this kheer.  Although I have made this and clicked the photographs so many times, could not post it as I totally forgot about this.   Hence I thought I will post the same today.

Happy women's day.

Let us look at the recipe now.

My 450th Post.  unknowingly, it became a sweet, lovely summer cooler drink.  After posting only, I noticed it was my 450th post.

Thank you everyone who stood beside me to happen this blog and the lovely journey from 5th May 2013 onwards.  My sincere thanks to Madhura, Dahlia Twinkle & Kaveri Venkatesh, My son Krishnan Iyer, My nephew Shankar for inspiring me to create the blog.

I am loving it.  Ofcourse,  I cannot forget my husband, my daughter, my neighbours and my judges Rinku, Anjali, Trushma and my office colleagues and friends for tasting the dishes and their lovely comments, critics, advise etc.

Summer has started and the the heat is on.  Everyone wants cold drinks, be it lassi, butter milk  sugar cane juice, whatever it is.  But it should be healthy at the same time cooling the body.  We have natural resources to quench our thirst and cool the body.  tender coconut water is one of the best  summer cooler.  If added something extra to it, makes it yummy, healthy and tasty.

Yes, I am talking about tender coconut milk shake or payasam, elaneer payasam or milk shake.  No need to cook.  you can make it instantly and drink it with ice cubes or refrigerate it and serve cold.

Exams have started and it is a best drink for the children.  watch on Youtube: tender coconut payasam

I never used to like sweet items in my childhood.  I was a fan of all spicy items and never used to leave a chance whenever I get it.  After my marriage, I started eating sweets little bit and now I crave for them immediately after my lunch or dinner.  My mother in law and my husband eats lots of sweets and she also makes a variety of sweets.  Staying with her more than 18 years, I have become crazy  now for sweets.

One of my friend who shared this recipe with me said that you taste this, will remember me for ever.  I had kept the Pethe in the fridge for a long time,somehow I could not make it.  Recently, I decided that I must finish it off with this recipe now.  Tell you it was fantastic.  Thanks to my dear friend for this lovely recipe.  It is very simple and easy to make.

You must be familiar with the Agra ki pethe.  Pethe is prepared with white pumpkin (ashgourd) and sugar. You can also use the matured white pumpkin for making the kheer if you cannot get the pethe.

Jackfruit kheer, jackfruit payasam, chakka pradhaman whatever you call is a very delicious kheer made out of jackfruit, jaggery and coconut milk with fried coconut bits in it adds flavour to it.  We can make jackfruit jam and preserve it.  whenever we want, we can make pradhaman out of it.  It is a part of occasion, feast in Kerala as jackfruit is available in abundance.  Here I have made the kheer with only 3 pcs of jackfruit which will suffice only for one person.

This kheer or payasam is very special during Shasta preeti.  Shasta preeti is conducted in praise of Lord Ayyappa  during the Sabarimala season.  The pilgrimage begins in the month of November and ends in January.   Mandala pooja and Makaravilakku are the main events during the piligrims.   The Makarajyoti coincide with Makar Sankrant.   

The blend of coconut milk with rice and jaggery  is mouth watering and one cannot forget the taste of it.  I love this kheer as it has got a very special aroma comes in especially when it is made during the pooja.

I always prefer to make the same with fresh coconut milk, but due to lack of time to go through the tedious process involved in it, I use the short cut i.e. prefer to use the store bought ones.

I have already posted 3-4 items of  vari tandul or sanwa or samo rice or bhagar or chama ari or moriyo it is called.  Bhagar sarkara pongal  moriyo-ven-pongalmoriyo-dosa bhagar dosa etc.   Now I am presenting the Bhagar milk kheer.  Very easy to prepare, healthy and  a nice dish for fasting day.


Pongal festival is falling on 14th January this year.  Normally everyone make the pongal sweet and savoury with rice.  I am presenting the sweet pongal with samo rice.  Already posted  the savoury version.

Today is the beginning of the year four teen I mean two thousand fourteen.  May God Bless the Universe with peace and harmony.  Loka Samastha Sukhino Bhavanthu.  Thought of making sweet dish along with Poori and Choley today.  The bamboo rice which I got it specially from Kerala for making dishes out of it is lying in the store room for the past three months only I could make it today.  Though the Payasam or Kheer is made for the first time by me, it turned out very well and liked by everyone.  The bamboo  rice looks like brown rice, very small like the surti kolam or wada kolam rice.  It is quite healthy and Controls sugar, Cholesterol and Blood pressure.  Also controls, joint pain, back pan and rheumatic pain.  Good for night blindness, overcoming vitamin deficiency on pregnancy as mentioned in the pack.
