As we are leaving for a long leave for pongal Holidays , we had a stock milk sleeping in my freezer. Thinking of how to use it effectively, this pal payasam flashed into my mind. My MIL did it for me and it was so delicious. So a quick post on the same
Milk - 3 litres
Sugar - 500 gms
Cashew - 10
Dry Grapes - 10
Sooji - 2 tbsp
Ghee - 3 tbsp
Cardamom Powder - 1 pinch
Boil the milk by keeping it in simmer, by stirring it often. The milk gets thickened after a while. But you need hell a lot of patience for it. You can continue your household in between, and only thing you need to do is, stir it often.
Once the milk is thickened, add the sugar and cardamom powder.
Roast the Sooji in 1 tsp of ghee and add it to the payasam. Roast the Cashew and dry grapes in the rest of ghee and add it to the payasam.
That's it done, you can serve it hot or cold. It tastes almost similar to Basandhi. Have a nice treat and Happy Pongal to everyone.
