Macaroni Kheer - Macaroni payasam - Pasta payasam - Simple Pooja, festival recipe - simple sweet recipe

I love to try different kheer. Since I use less sugar I always think kheer is part of a well balanced meal. My hubby and my 2nd son love kheer. Sometimes I just do it for dinner yes your right, I don't need any special occasion to make a quick kheer. When I told my son I am going to make Macaroni kheer he told me it sound bit weird. But in the end he liked it too. 

Milk - 2.5 cups
Macaroni - 1 cup
Saffron - few strands
Cashew nuts - 1 tablespoon (broken into pieces. I use baked one but if you want to fry it in a teaspoon of ghee go ahead and fry first and keep it aside)
Sugar - 2-4 tablespoon (per your taste)
Cardamom powder - 1/4 teaspoon


Cook macaroni 3/4th per instruction, Drain the water and keep it aside. 
Boil milk when the milk is warm enough take 1/2 cup of milk and add saffron to it. Set side.
Continue to boil rest of the milk till it reduce to 3/4th. Now add cooked Macaroni and let it cook completely. Now sugar and mix well. Let it boil for another 2 - 3 mins. Add cardamom, saffron and nuts mix well. 

Serve hot or cold
