When I had posted the instant rice flour vadais, I had mentioned that I had made a payasam during the tamil new year. I thought of posting about it today.This kind of payasam with coconut was not made at my place as far as I remember. But I once had this at my friend place during some occasion a couple of years ago. It was simply awesome. But after that I never thought of trying it at home nor I got a chance of having it again. But I was looking for some payasam recipe which I have never tried before. I was reminded of this payasam and searched the net for the recipe. All the recipes I got had jaggery in it. I am bit apprehensive about using jaggery in payasam as it had once curdled the milk. So I never used jaggery in milk based desserts. But I decided to do it anyway.
The result was awesome .The payasam was really delicious and am quite confident of making this kind of payasams after following this recipe. Its really easy and is not time consuming at all. I am definitely going to use more of jaggery in my desserts as it is definitely better than refined sugar. Try this recipe for festivals . I am sure you are going to love this one.
