This is a guest post by my colleague and very good friend Asha. If you are in my office and need to find me and I am not at my desk I am most probably near Asha’s desk. Not a day goes by when we don’t talk. We share lots of gossip, interests and advice. When I mentioned about Pinktober she made this recipe and and got in office.
This payasam is not only healthy but yummy too. It is made from flattened rice (poha/aval) and beetroot. When we run out of options to include beetroot we have many more coming up. Try this out yourself and get surprised.
Flattened Rice – 1 cup
Milk – 2 cups
Beetroot – 1 Grated
Sugar – 2 cups
Dry Fruits/ Nuts – 1/2 cup (Optional)
Ghee – 2 tblspn (Optional)
- In a thick bottomed pan add milk and bring to a boil.
- Add poha, grated beetroot and cook till the milk has become half the amount.
- Add sugar and mix well.
- In a pan add ghee and saute dry fruits and nuts.
- Add this to the payasam mix.
@Asha: Thank You dear for adorning my blog with this sweet and lovely recipe. Hoping to see you more in this space.
