Get set and ready for a couple of easy and interesting dishes,which takes less time to make and quick to finish off the plate..;) just thinking of this yummy dishes stretches my memory and transports it to a time which reverbrates with energizing gastronomical treats with high calories ,surely, that was lot of fun we had as teens ,trying to prepare this kheer on our mini stove replicating grandma's recipe... which ,indeed gave me a Taste for Cooking...:)

Note: Sorry No Pic, as I was too busy devouring to take a picture of it..:)
