Shavige/sevai payasam is a simple yet tasty kheer. It is always a quick treat for unexpected guests and kids love it with ice cream. Sevai payasam, in the southern part of India, is almost synonymous with auspicious days. It is kind of a tradition in our house where sevai payasam is a must if it is a festival. And if it is a birthday, Gulab Jamun is a must :)
Our kids love the cold refrigerated Sevai payasam. Adding nutmeg or pistachios gives its own sweet and nutty aroma to the kheer.
Gulab Jamun is the Indian mouth watering dessert which is very easy to make. Store brought readymade powder has refined oil. Here, however, we know our ingredients. Here we have two methods. To demonstrate 2 different methods, I have divided the mix into 2 parts. You can use the entirety of the mix for the method of your choice. I am giving the measurement for the entire mix.
