So for the final day of this week’s BM# 34, I decided to make something different for ‘Desserts with Vegetables’. I saw this sweet pea kheer on a Telugu cooking show and remember thinking to myself ‘why would anyone use sweet peas to make kheer!!!!’ But of course when Valli announced the themes, I knew I had to experiment with a vegetable that I have never used in desserts before, so here it is a kheer with sweet peas.
On the cooking show the kheer had a beautiful minty green color, but mine didn’t turn out that color. I guess I didn’t grind the sweet peas into a smooth enough paste to get that color.
I only made a small quantity because I was skeptical how the kheer would turn out. I didn’t taste the sweet peas that much but since the texture was a little chunky, could feel the peas texture. All in all it turned out to be successful dessert that my 14month old and I slurped up.
Ingredients: Makes 1 very generous serving or 2 small servings
