Fresh Fruit Payasam Recipe

Hi Supermoms,

Hope you are all well. 

We all know that fruits are good for health. It is a great snack too. But the problem is that I am quite lazy when it comes to eating fruits. This has been a problem since childhood. My father tried his best to get me into the habit of eating fruits regularly . He even used to cut the fruits and make me eat 😅. But all those efforts did not bear any fruit! 😆😆.

I haven't changed much when it comes to eating fruits and my son has a taken after me. As a mother, I want my children to eat fruits in some form. I try and use fruits in cooking. I make Gooseberry Rasam /Watermelon Rasam / Orange peel rasam, Mango Kuzhambu, Strawberry Kara kuzhambu, Strawberry chutney, Mango cake and other desserts using fruits. It may sound crazy, but I feel happy, creating fruit recipes. 

This Ganesh Chaturthi, I made fresh fruit payasam for offering as Neivedyam/prashad . Easy recipe with handful of ingredients and less sugar, this kheer was loved by all in my family.

I am sure you will be tempted to try this kheer/payasam immediately. If you are vegan, you can skip ghee and also use coconut milk .
