Today is my husband's birthday,  In the morning, he said, make sevai kheer for dinner.  We do not have time in the morning as we have to rush to office by 7.00  - 7.10 am.  Hence we decided to have a simple meal at home only as during rainy season, we do not go out to eat.

Co-incidently, to day is Aadi month begins i.e. Karkatakam (Ashadam) so I made nei payasam and medu vada also for Neivedyam.  Recipe follows:


Sevai kheer is very easy to make if you have milk, roasted sevai, little bit of ghee and dry fruits at home. I used the ready made roasted sevai which is available in the market.

roasted sevai

Total time taken 20 minutes
serves : 2-3


1/4 cup roasted sevai
1 cup milk
1/4 cup water
4 tbsp sugar free (adjust according to your taste bud)
dry fruits (i used only kaju) (u can use badam pista etc.)

a generous pinch of cardamom powder
1 tsp ghee
few strands of saffron


Heat ghee in kadai, fry the cashews till golden brown and keep aside.
in the same kadai, add the broken sevai and roast for one minute
add 1/4 cup water and cook the same for two minutes.
now add the milk and boil for 5 minutes
in little hot water mix the safforn and add it to the boiling kheer.
add the sugar free and boil for another 5 minutes.
switch off gas, transfer the kheer in a bowl
add the cardamom powder and mix well.
garnish with fried cashews.
serve hot or cold as you like.
Your diet friendly kheer is ready to serve.

Variation:  You can use normal sugar
Tips: remember, when the kheer becomes cold, it will thicken.  if it is too thick, add hot milk in it.

Mango is a delicious fruit and we had the same in our backyard abundantly.  During mango season, all the dishes at home will be mango based.

My children loves to eat mango.  They also like mango milk shake.  During the season, I used to make mango pulp and keep it in fridge.  Whenever they feel like drinking mango milk shake, they used to mix the pulp and milk and enjoy.

I tried the combination of mango pulp, milk and dry fruits to make this sweet dish and came out well and enjoyed by everyone.   This mango katli is a delicious sweet dish one can enjoy it during the season.
