I had participated in a blog event - picnic desserts by Geetha @ SunMoon and potatoes.She contacted me a few weeks later that I was selected winner...yay! My first win in any event real or virtual :) I received my giveaway from Raven of Cook.Eat.Delicious who's the brain behind the CEDD events.I can't thank Raven, Geetha and all my lovely friends enough,who keep pouring in the beautiful words of encouragement and inspire me to go on :) I'm waiting to try something out from this beautiful book!

The recipe that got me this book is here - lemon muffins with lemon cream drizzle.

What better way to celebrate something good or just an excuse to indulge in some sweet craving :) 

This kheer/pudding is very easy to make.Payasam/kheer usually makes its presence in all indian banquets or meals as the dessert.This sago/javarisi payasam is so easy you can make it immediately.The only time it takes is to cook the sago beads.

Milk 1/2 cup
Water enough to cook the sago

Cashew nuts 1 tablespoon roughly chopped (or almonds)

  •  Soak the sago beads in some water for 2 hours until they go translucent.Add enough water in a deep vessel and cook the sago until they go transparent.Keep checking for the water.This is will take some time about 10 minutes.
  • Once the sago cooks, add the milk and cook it some milk and add the cardamom pods.
