Carrot Kheer

Today we start for a month long Blogging Marathon!!!When Valli announced that we had to blog continuously for a month and a thematic one, I was skeptical and wanted to back out. But Blogging marathon group is a family on its own and family just not let go because you are Scared,rather they coax you, prod you , encourage you…if everything else fails….the princi takes the stick….:-)..Jokes apart…the encouragement from the fellow members made me sign up for this marathon. The theme for week1 is occasions. Well ….they are so many occasions that we celebrate….I would rather celebrate daily for such a great life and wonderful family…but today the occasion I have chosen is a Marriage anniversary.
Wedding anniversary brings back lovely memories of that great day in your life and what better way to celebrate that day than a traditional Payasam /Kheer.As I have blogged about the the other payasam ,I decided to try  this payasam from Suma’s Blog Cakes And More
So this is the first post for the month long thematic blogging.Thank you Preeti for this lovely logo
