My Notes:

  • This payasam thicken with time so switch off when its a little runny.
  • I used fine rava so it gets cooked easily.
  • You can even add a tbsp of condensed milk for more richness.
  • Roast rava just for few mins, don't let it change the color.

Where you got these cute tumbler and spoons? Your notes really helping a lot, as you said this payasam started thicking by the time of neivethyam, I kept some more milk ready to add and serve. Thanking again for sharing the notes, which really helps us to make the recipe perfect 100%.
