Pearl Millet Vermicelli Kheer/Kambu Semiya Payasam/Kambu Semiya Paal Payasam

An Indian festival is not complete without a kheer, every household have their own way of making payasam aka kheer. You can see varieties of kheers in this virtual world, from Sago to vermicelli, with varieties of wholegrains, this delectable sweet is prepared with many interesting ingredients. I cant imagine my festive meal without this milk based semi liquid constitency sweet. My daughter love vermicelli kheer very much, she can have it anytime, if i make kheer with vermicelli, i usually go for a huge quantity of kheer. If i starts cleaning my pooja room, she will immediately ask me whether am going to make kheer for our lunch, for her if its a religious festival then there will be definitely kheer for the lunch.For this week of blogging marathon, i picked festival foods as theme. After a delicious Mango coconut burfi for Raksha Bandhan and a health Ragi paal kozhukattai for Ganesh chathurthi,today am sharing an another healthy kheer for Krishna Jayanthi celebration.
