Paneer Kheer Recipe | Paneer Payasam | Chenna Kheer | Payasam Recipes

Finally, I am clearing all my very old posts from the draft. This post is almost two years old and I made it when I was living in Navallur, Chennai. Hence, the quality of the picture is not too good. Actually, on that day I was planning to make Kalakand and got the ingredients ready. However, when few unexpected guests turned out for that day's lunch, I made this paneer kheer as a dessert along with the lunch. It was a super hit and the guests liked it a lot. It is a simple and easy to make dessert with very few ingredients. Do follow my homemade paneer recipe and prepare fresh paneer at home for this payasam. Check out my Payasam/Kheer collection too. Let us move on to the recipe:

Mushroom & Spinach Sandwich Recipe | Mushroom & Spinach in White Sauce Sandwich | White Sauce Veggie Sandwich

Because of the sudden change in the Sydney weather, I was down with flu and cold for the past few days. Hence, I was not able to post anything on the blog and I did a very minimal cooking as well. Today's post is a simple and healthy sandwich, which we can make it for our morning breakfast. The sandwich can be served with any smoothie, boiled egg and fruits for a filling and healthy weekday breakfast. I made this mushroom spinach sandwich with white sauce and hence it is a little heavy and cheesy. If you don't prefer white sauce, then you can add the sauteed veggies alone as the filling. Let us move on to the recipe. Check out the below-listed sandwiches too and plan your breakfast.

This is very similar to the Veg biryani and Vegetable Semiya biryani that I posted earlier. It goes very well with any Non-Veg gravy or Paneer Butter Masala. For the lunch box, I pair it with Potato fry and onion raita. Let us move on to the recipe:

Poli Recipe | Pachapayaru Poli | Green Gram Poli | Payatham paruppu Poli | Pachai Paasiparuppu Poli

Poli is one of my all time favourite sweet and I never miss to taste Paruppu poli and coconut poli in restaurants if the menu card has it. When I was preparing green gram recipes for an event, the idea of green gram poli came to mind and I tried it immediately. It came out very well and we all liked it. The filling is similar to the Pachapayaru Suzhiyam I posted earlier. I have already posted Puran Poli/Paruppu Poli in the initial days of blogging. Do check that too. Let us move on to the recipe:
