Kaddu ki kheer recipe, Pumpkin payasam

Kaddu ki kheer | Pumpkin payasam | Gummadikaya payasam, kheer made with pumpkin, almonds and saffron compliments the richness. I always make pumpkin soup and it is a very common dish in our home. Mostly pumpkin i buy will be used for soup or i put them in Sambar. As Navaratri season is coming up i wanted to share some festival recipes and tried this Kaddu ki kheer and posting with step by step pictures and video. The payasam tasted so creamy and yum and it tasted just like the carrot kheer. Later i felt, i should have made the pumpkin payasam with jaggery as how i did for carrot payasam. As pumpkins are available in the market so easily now a days, try this kheer for the festival season and celebrate the joy of festivity. Check out the complete collection of Navaratri recipes.

Notes:
  1. Almonds can be replaced by cashew nuts too.
  2. I cooked the pumpkin directly in the pressure cooker, but you can saute in a pan and pressure cook it by keeping it inside a vessel. 
  3. Sugar can be replaced with condensed milk to give more richness to the kaddu ki kheer.
