Any kheer or payasam is always a welcome dish when it comes to a festival or party.

Cashew nuts - 1 cup
Badam - 1 cup (soak and deskin)
Cardamom - 8 nos
Ground nut - 1 cup (deskinned)
Dry grapes - 1 cup
Walnut - 1/2 cup

Dry roast cashew, badam and ground nut one by one in a pan. It should be roasted in low flame. Grind it together with cardamom, dry grapes and walnut.

Add 2 spoons of this powder to 1 cup of warm milk along with a spoon of sugar. This is a very good health drink. A spoon of this powder can be added to a cup of corn flakes and milk.

Idly Upma using Idly milagaipodi

    Left over idlies are always consumed by dipping in milagaipodi. Thought of making it as upma and try out the taste and yes it did turn out yummy.

Gingely oil - 4 tsp
Idly podi - 4 spoons (or more according to need)
Mustard seeds - 1/2 sp

Ghee - 2 spoons

Break the idlies into small pieces. Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and when it splutters add asafodeita and idly milagaipodi. Saute and add idly immediatly and mix well. Check for salt and add if needed.

Add ghee and serve hot.
