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 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 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.

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.

Nei payasam.

Payasam means kheer.  A sweet dish made with jaggery, plenty of ghee for Neivedyam in temples as well as at home.  This mouth watering kheer remains in the fridge for around 15 days if kept properly.  This is normally made in Uruli ( a brass vessel) in temples and even at home.
