Besan kheer

Besan kheer | kadalamaavu payasam is a creamy and nutty flavored payasam | kheer with besan, ghee, milk and sugar as the main ingredients. The slow roasting of besan in ghee, as we do for besan ladoo, emits a nice nutty flavour and adds a nice flavour to the kheer. A quick and easy kheer recipe which you can make during Navaratri  neivedhyam and also serve for guests. Check out my complete collection of Navaratri recipes.   These cute bowls are gifted by my blogger friend anu, she sent this through her sister who stays nearby my house.
The besan kheer tasted very nice after it was kept in the refrigerator for 4-5 hours.

Besan kheer
  1. The kheer tends to get thicker once chilled.
  2. You can add sliced badam to it in the last. 
  3. Roasting the flour gets rid of the raw smell of the flour, so do not skip it.
  4. Roast it well to enhance the flavour of the kheer. 
  5. You can add condensed milk too in the last. In that case reduce the sugar.
