Little Millet Pudding

Little Millet Pudding

Other Names  Sawa Millet Kheer. Saamai Payasam.

It is a lovely coincidence, when a simple recipe turns out to be deliciously addictive. :) And, this new Kheer is just as good, with two humble ingredients millet and milk. I realize that I have shared a bunch of quick fix Kheer recipes here before. But it is quite nice to have a different desserts to choose between when our late night cravings set in. :)

  • 2 Tbsp sawa millet
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 pinch cardamom powder
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp ghee
  • few sliced almonds
  • few pistachios
  • few raisins


  1. In a deep dish pan, smear quarter teaspoon of ghee and stir-in the millet. When they get roasted, set aside. 
  2. Bring milk and sugar to rolling boil and simmer it down. Allow this to reduce into half or thicken to taste good. 
  3. Now, add roasted millet and cardamom. Cook briefly and remove from heat. 
  4. Toss the nuts and raisins in the Kheer. And, chill the same and serve forth.
