Papaya Kheer ( Papaya Pudding Indian Style)

This is an amazing kheer fit for the summers. You can have it warm or chilled does not matter. Addition of semolina is optional because this kheer gets thick from the pulp of papaya as it is. But I add semolina so that it gets filling for my daughter. Kheers are easy options to get your kids eat fruits and when laden with nuts and ghee they are the best you can give them. They also make amazing breakfast and when you have it chilled in the morning it's more like a breakfast bowl or fruit yogurt.
