I happen to see this Cucumber Kheer(Vellarikkai Payasam) in one of the TV shows. I was so fascinated by this and tried it immediately and it turned out awesome. I have made a slight variation. The kheer is so tasty and yummy. Generally, milk kheer (Pal Payasam), semolina kheer and other dal kheers are the traditional and conventional kheers we use to make at home. This is a very unique and yummy kheer.
