While searching for recipes for Gudi Padwa, I came across many sweets recipes. Most popular search result was “shrikhand recipes”. But I felt like trying something different and so I searched for “payasam recipes”. I found what I was looking for, a payasam or kheer recipe that I had not heard of before, “Pasta Payasam”. This recipe looked super interesting and just as important, simple-to-make. 😉 I made this payasam/kheer late afternoon on Gudi Padwa and posting the recipe after that would have been a rush job. So here’s my Gudi Padwa recipe two days later, but better late than never, right? 🙂
So far whenever, I’ve made kheer for Devansh I have avoided using sugar. Heck, I even make caramel custard for him using jaggery. But this time I was in a dilemma, and couldn’t decide whether to use sugar or jaggery till the very end. In the end, I decided to go with sugar (organic of course), because I thought jaggery will mask saffron’s flavor. As a result, Devansh didn’t like the taste so much, he is used to the jaggery taste.
But the rest of the family liked the kheer, I mean how can you not like saffron-flavored kheer that’s got dry fruits in it? But kids, go figure!! I wasn’t sure if my mom would like it though, given that she’s not too crazy about pasta but she liked its kheer. Do give this pasta kheer recipe a try and let me know how you and your kids like it.
