Dry Fruits Paayasam/Kheer

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Tuesday, March 22, 2011

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!!!!
