Arisi pal payasam– Indian Rice pudding- Payasam varieties

    This is the first time I am joining the blogging marathon initiated by Srivalli. Posting everyday for a month was not possible for me, but the seven day thing sounded good and along with the theme made it even more interesting. Probably,the south Indian in me made me choose rice of all the given options and I will be posting rice based recipes for the next seven days. I do hope to come up with some good recipes and hence I decided to give a start with the popular payasam/kheer made with rice.I have already posted another version of the payasam here and mentioned that there are various ways people make this payasam.So now here goes the recipe.
