Celebrate Sweets- Kheer RoundUp

 It was really a pleasure for me to host this sweet event. I enjoyed a lot by going around the blogs and checking the sweet recipes. I have to thank Nivedita for giving me this wonderful opportunity. This Celebrate Sweets Event was initially started by Nivedita with Halwa as the main sweet and now it's been continued by other bloggers to guest host this event. When it comes to Celebration, whatever your ethnicity, whatever language you speak but a sweet is a must.
     I would also like to thank all our fellow bloggers who supported this event by sending their delicious sweet recipes. The success of every event depends upon the support of the fellow bloggers. This time I have also received one entry from a non blogger friend Aysha from Germany. Thank you Aysha for sending your sweet delicacy.

My entries

Walnut and Almond Kheer

Black Jaggery Kheer

Finally to finish of this sweet kheer event we have a recipe from one of my friend Aysha banu from Germany, Parrupu Adai Payasam, makesit healthy with the addition of jaggery and very simple to make.

Paruppu-Adai paayasam

This is a simple South-Indian paayasam. It is very easy to make, but tastes delicious and makes a any
day a festive day.

Moong Dal – 1 ½ cup

Adai – 1 cup (a kind of rice noodles)

Water – 3 cups for daal

Jaggery – 200g

Water – just to immerse the jaggery

Cashews - 10

Raisins - 10

Coconut - an one inch piece, cut into very thin slices

Ghee – 2-3 Tbs

Salt – ½ tsp


Add water to jaggery in a vessel, heat it until jaggery gets dissolved. Filter it to remove any impurities
and keep this dissolved jaggery(thin paagu) warm.

Cook the daal along with water and salt. When the daal is half-cooked, add the adai to it. Wait until
the daal is completely cooked and the adai has got just soft. At this stage, add the dissolved jaggery
to it and simmer for 2-3 mins.

Heat the ghee in a small kadai and roast the cashews, raisins and coconut until the coconut slices
turn slightly brown. Now, add these to the paayasam. That’s it.

Care should be taken not to let the adai over cooked. The adai must be edible, but still the
adai flakes must be clearly visible. When it is overcooked, the paayasam becomes cloggy.
When using roast cashews, they can be added directly to the paayasam.
This paayasam tastes best, when served warm. Can be stored in the fridge for 3-4 days and it
is enough to heat it up a little, before serving.

One late entry Semiya Payasam by Neeru's.

Once again thank you everyone for sending your sweet recipes and making this event a successful one. I'm sure you must have a long list to be book marked from this collection of recipes.
I  cared a lot to miss any of your recipes, if I have missed any of your recipes my apologies, please let me know immediately so that I can make the changes. Also if there is any mistake in your name or blog name also please let me know.
 Thank you Nivedita for giving me this wonderful opportunity.
