Mambazha Payasam/ Mango Kheer/ Aam ki Kheer

Dear Friends, 
You might wonder where I disappeared suddenly. It has been more than a week since I posted anything, blog hopped or even I haven't been active in Facebook. My son turned 2, last week and we had a party this weekend. Preparing for the party and cooking took up all my time so couldn't spend time for blogging. Now that the party is over, I am back to blogging and will be sharing the recipes I made for the party in the coming days.
Today's recipe is the Mango Kheer I made for the party and I am so glad that everyone loved this kheer.

Mango Kheer

What are the ingredients required?

Vermicelli, 2-3 Tablespoons
Milk, 3 cups
Condensed milk, 1/4 cup
Sugar, 2-3 tablespoons
Mango Pulp, 1 cup
Ghee, 2-3 Teaspoons
Raisin, 7-8nos.
Cashews, 7-8 nos
Cardamom, 4 nos.
Pistachios, for garnishing.
Fresh mango, (peeled and diced), 1 no. (optional)

Mambazha Payasam

How it is made?

  1. Peel the cardamom, discard the skin and Powder the seeds with a tablespoon of sugar and keep it aside.
  2. In a pan heat a teaspoon of ghee and fry the vermicelli till it is lightly golden.
  3. Then add the milk to it and let it simmer till the vermicelli is cooked.  
  4. Then add the sugar and condensed milk and bring it to boil and let it simmer for few minutes.
  5. Then add the powdered cardamom mix well and turn off the heat. 
  6. Then let it cool completely, then add the mango pulp and mix well. 
  7. Fry cashews and raisins in ghee and then mix with this and also add the diced mangoes and mix well and serve. 
  8. It tastes best when served cold.

Mango Payasam


  • I have used canned sweetened mango pulp so used less sugar. In case if you are using fresh mango pulp adjust the sweetness accordingly. If  you prefer less sweet you can omit the sugar too.
  • Instead of vermicelli you can use sago/javvarisi too. I have prepared this combo once before and i just loved the combo.
  • The kheer can thicken up after sometime, so before serving dilute it with milk to the required consistency. 
  • The amount of cashew and raisins can be added as per your personal preference. 
  • Adding fresh fruit is purely optional. But I would recommend adding it.
