Otthu Shaavige payasa/Rice sevai kheer

A very happy Dussera to all of you. Let this Dussera bring you lots of happiness and prosperity.

We have written about ottu shaavige or rice sevai previously. Payasam or kheer is a simple sweet with this sevai and a quick one with a a traditional feel, ideal for a festival and perfect for this Dusshera. Also with eid-Al adha round the corner, shaavige payasa is a superb alternative for sheer kurma
