Barley is slightly roasted in ghee and crushed into very small pieces.This cracked barley is stored in a dry jar. A small quantity of this is boiled well .Milk is added to this mixture .Raisins and soaked dates can be used for garnishing.This payasam is sweetened with Mishri.

When this kheer is eaten after food - it helps the children to put on weight.
It is useful even for unduly thin adults and teenagers .

(note: Weight loss in children is a cause for concern and any sudden weight gain or loss must be monitored closely.Some children are unable to gain weight due to many issues like milk intolerance,infections,worm infestations,zinc deficiency,celiac disease....and many other causes.A doctor's opinion would be necessary..)
