Green peas Kheer recipe | Happy New year 2018

Wish you all a very Happy New year 2018. Let's start the New year 2018, with a sweet recipe. Green peas kheer, yes you heard it right. Kheer made with green peas, almond and sugar as main ingredients. I have tried this Green peas kheer last year for a cookery demo here in Singapore. As green peas is in season now, i thought it will be perfect to post the recipe now. We can use frozen peas and make this any time of the year. You will not find the smell of green peas in this recipe and trust me it is a treat for the guests who are visiting on NEW year day.
