Oats Kheer/ Payasam

Oats Kheer/ Payasam:

Serving Payasam or Kheer after the meal is our traditional practice, most of us search for some sweets after our meal, to enjoy the feel of a complete meal. Especially sweets are served in our feast, with fried papad gives a peculiar taste. We might have tried with regular payasam for Pooja and parties, with rice granules, semiya, and sago (javvarisi) , but this is really a unique payasam when compared, oats and jaggery with coconut milk have amazing taste, the Flaky bite of oats and crunchy bite of ghee roasted nuts wow!!!! yummy feel.
