POHA KHEER / AVAL PAYASAM


This is a very easy kheer recipe that can be made in a jiffy when you are short of time to make any elaborate dessert. It can be relished anytime even for breakfast. You can use sugar or jaggery.. My personal preference is jaggery in this particular kheer.

Ingredients:
Poha / flattened rice / aval  ... 1 cup
Milk ........... 2 cups
Jaggery or sugar ........ 1/2   cup
Cardamom powder ... 1/4 tsp
Salt ... one pinch 
Nuts .... for garnishing 
Ghee .... 1 tbsp

Method:
1. Heat ghee in a pan and saute the flattened rice until you get a nice aroma.
2. Add 2 cups milk, pinch of salt, cardamom powder and simmer to cook.
3. Cook the jaggery in one and half cups water, strain it and add to the kheer.( If you are adding sugar then you can directly add it to the kheer but you will require more milk or add a cup of water.)
4. When the poha is cooked and the kheer thickens serve it hot or cold  garnished with chopped nuts.

Note: You can even add raisins if you like. The consistency and the sweetness can adjusted be as per your liking.
