Queen's B day celebration with Pumpkin Seed Dessert :)



Cake

Happy B'Day Queen!!!!!! Who is that???????

Yup.. you guessed it right.. its me the little queen of my family celebrating my birthday today. :)

I have grown a year older now, which means more of responsibilities, no more being naughty, not any more a baby.. :( (which is really sad)

But anyways I am happy and always ready to face the other phases of life. Hoping to have yet another year of excitement as ever. :):):):)

My parents, friends, foes and all played their roles to make me happy today. Its so good to feel important and noticed na.. I enjoyed it pretty well today. :)

Dad gifted me a super good SLR camera.. :) but I relish his hug and a kiss more than anything. Thanks dad. ;)

Mom made this yummy delicacy just for me. She is my best buddy always. :) Love you mom.

Sis was so sweet today. She surprised me with her visit in the afternoon along with a cute little sinfully chocolaty cake. :) And yeah she gifted me a cool looking goggles. Thank you sisy.. you are sweet as ever. :)

Thanks a lot to all my fellow bloggers and other friends who wished me and made my day really special. :)

A special thanks to my blogger buddy Rohini of Currys and spices. She has dedicated a post to wish me. :) Thats simply too sweet of you. :)

Off to the recipe now:


Pumpkin seed dessert/ Parangi vidhai payasam/ Gumidi vithulu paravannam :)


Pumpkin seed payasam2


Ingredients:

Pumpkin seed(De husked) - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 1/4 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Rice flour - 2 tsp
Water - 1 cup


Pumpkin seed payasam3


Method:

Soak the de husked pumpkin seeds in water for an hour. Grind the seeds into smooth paste adding water to it.

Now take this paste, sugar and milk in a heavy bottomed vessel. Mix the rice flour with little water and add it to the mixture. Now cook it for a while in medium flame mixing now and then till the raw smell leaves. Don't panic if it cuddles, that is how it is suppose to be. Switch off the flame and let it cool for a while.

Pumpkin seed payasam is ready to eat. Serve it hot or cold. I love it cold :)

Happy making. :)
