Aval Payasam or Red Rice Poha Kheer is a recipe that suits any season. I have used Red Rice Poha. This is an idea to add little more nutrition and taste too. Poha is roasted in ghee. beaten in a blender and cooked in milk and ghee. Finally garnished with nuts. This payasam saves time. Unlike Pal Payasam it is prepared in very less time. It tastes awesome. Here goes the recipe…
