Payasam is a must in all tamil festival offerings and meals, may be a festival, family function. Usually I used to prepare a Tamil Vegetarian meals that I serve in Banana leaf for Tamil New Year, but this year thought of curating a special dish for Tamil New Year.
Here came the concept “Mukkani” in my mind, Mukkani means Tri-Fruit. In Tamil literature, Mukkani / Tri-Fruit refers to Mangoes, Jack fruit and Bananas. As these fruits are seasonal and available all together at this summer, thought of preparing a dessert with these fruits which resulted in my MUKKANI PAYASAM / TRI-FRUIT KHEER.
Taking it to Fiesta Friday #167 hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner.
