payasam 2

Happy Dasera to the viewers.  Rice payasam most popular Indian sweet pudding can be served either warm or cold.  I make it more rich by reducing the milk to half the quantity and adding nuts to taste.  If you want the lighter version you can skip the process of reducing the milk to half and just boil it along with the rice and cook till done.  Even condensed milk can be added to the payasam for more taste.  Wonderful & delicious sweet perfect for this season.

nut ball 2

"Nuts ball a day keeps the doctors away"

There is no specific ingredient list for making this healthy and nutricious nut balls.  All kind of nuts like cashewnuts, almonds, pista, wallnuts, hazelnuts, etc., and dry fruits like raisins, dates, prunes, etc., can be used for this preparation.  Every time I try to add some seasonal nuts and fruits to this mixture.  Honey helps in binding all the nuts together and add more flavour to the mixture.  This needs to be stored in the air tight container & a tsp of nuts mixture is good to be served in everyday mornings.  

Ingredients :
  1. Nuts ( Any kind)
  2. Dry fruits (Any kind)
  3. Dates
  4. Honey 
Direction to Mix :

2.  Mix together the chopped nuts and  honey.  Store in the air tight container.
