Payassam or Kheer has always been my favorite recipe since I was a young girl. My mother used to treat me to this beautiful dessert after playtime on most days and it just left me wanting more. Payassam was definitely the only reason I ever wanted to cut my play-time short.

This dessert is close to every Indian's heart and the replacement of dairy milk with plant-based milk only makes it better!

2. Fry the sevaiya till golden brown in canola oil.

3. Add fried Almonds and Cashews to the Sevaiya.
