Samai Semiya Kheer/Little Millet Vermicelli Kheer

During my last trip to India, i was surprised to see the varieties of vermicelli available in stores, especially different millet based vermicellis. Actually i can see many peoples even in our family started replacing the rice with millets now. Coming to my today's recipe, this little millet vermicelli kheer is quite a rich,creamy and very delightful dessert or a prasadam for a Pooja or as a sweet to serve after a meal for a special occasion. Since this little millet vermicelli are quite thin, the cooking process goes for a quick,easy and less time. I prepared this little millet vermicelli kheer for Ayudha pooja's celebration, obviously a healthy prasadam to enjoy the goodness of this millets.

Usually i prepare kheer with sweetened condensed milk along with usual milk, but this time i replaced the sweetened condensed milk with cream, yes i used cream for making this kheer. A bowl of this creamy kheer will definitely please everyone's tastebuds. An excellent dessert for kids, this kheer was approved super delicious by my kids and they loved it very much. Thats why, am sending this alluring,creamy kheer to this week's blogging marathon with Kid's Delight - Cooking with Wholegrains.
