Nuts and dry fruits kheer recipes - easy dessert recipes

       It was chitra visu yesterday and I hope you all had a great time . I had a busy but wonderful day though I did not cook an elaborate lunch like that of the previous year. We followed the usual ritual of seeing the vishukani the first thing in the morning and later had a simple lunch consisting of variety rice and a payasam.

          I thought of making a payasam with nuts and dryfruits , something diferent from the usual ones .I used raisins and dates which I had at home, but you can use nuts and  other dryfruits.

         The almond /badam feast of MTR imparts a nice rich flavour to the payasam and I use this in almost all of my payasam recipes.

     It was delicious, thats all I can say about the payasam.
