Before you say that I have left blogging, I finally decided to do a post today. I do have a few posts in my drafts , but somehow I kept it postponing with the other activities. Its the busiest time of the year for the kids with a number of activities lined up at school which keeps all mummies on their toes. While some other things comes up along with the usual routine activities. Similarly kiddos teacher wanted a few parent volunteers for some activity in school for the SG 50 celebrations going on. All kids were given lego sets and had to make some important monuments of Singapore with them. We had to help the kids with it. It was full of fun and excitement. We all felt energetic and were amazed at their imagination. The kids came up with beautiful models with their lego sets.
Okay to the recipe now, I made this kheer some ages ago. I got these makhana (or lotus seeds or you can even call them lotus nuts or fox nuts )after I learned that they are really nutritious and low in fat. They can be roasted and served as a evening snack. I will post that recipe sometime soon. Meanwhile one day I decided to combine almonds and these nuts as I heard the combination works really well and made a payasam/kheer/pudding with it. It was really good and we enjoyed it. The kids found a little weird eating the lotus seeds for the first time , but later they enjoyed the dessert. You can serve it chilled. We love our kheer chilled, but its your wish how you want to serve it. Its almost badam kheer with a extra nutrition of lotus seeds and chironji.
I hope you try this and like it too!! See you soon!!
