Dry Fruits Paayasam/Kheer

My Kiddo is enjoying his Academic Break. I m trying make him some thing tasty, healthy and introduce him to some new food group and taste. He loves the Dry Fruit Milkshake available @ most of the Restaurants. so i tried to bring out the same taste, by adding some more healthy ingredients. Thankfully, he liked it very much. Thought of posting it for Last month’s Kids Delight – Restaurant Recreations, but couldn’t make it!!! But Never too late, to post something healthy, delicious and make our kids happy too!!!!
