Atta Flour Kheer | Godhuma Pindi Payasam

Atta Flour Kheer
Godhuma Pindi Payasam / Atta Flour Kheer is a Warangal/Telangana special dish. I followed a recipe from youtube in making this dish. It was easy, but little tedious at the same time. You have to keep stirring the kheer all the time to avoid forming lumps. Other than stirring it is simple & less time consuming dish with simple ingredients. It might resemble a little like halwa in shape, but it's not. 
Godhuma Pindi Payasam is a Telangana sweet dish that is specially made for Varalaxmi Vratam. It is believed that dishes, which are made of atta flour are very auspicious while offering to god. I made it for Navratri as offering to god. It was tasty & very satisfying for my sweet tooth.

  1. Just this morning I was thinking there is W for Warangal. I did not even consider Indian cities as I thought we were not doing Indian recipes for this BM. Godhumapindi payasam is totally new to me. I should ask my mom if we make it for varalakshmi puja. Payasam looks creamy and yummy.

  2. Interesting kheer.. So yummy looking kheer too

  3. Kheer looks delicious,creamy and thick.. I have tried kheer with wheat rava but never with flour, will try out soon.

  4. That's nice choice for W. Warangal didn't cross my mind. :)
    Looks like your patience paid off. That bowl of kheer looks yummy.

  5. Love the kheer. I make it in a different way.
