Sweet potato payasam recipe!!Happy b’day sis!!

It was my sister’s birthday last week. And though we are a few thousands miles away from each other, the day had to be celebrated from my side. After all she is one of the most important person in my life, my best friend. My kid sister, but has been like my mother. She does everything, what my mom would have done for me. She has a good sense of humour , so keeps everyone near her cheerful always. So this one is for you S. Happy birthday and may you acheive all the best’est’ things in life!!!

Coming to the post, actually I was wondering what to make for the special day. S is not too fond of sweets and would have preffered something spicy like samosas or chaat. But will prepare that when you are with me!!Anyways,we thought of celebrating it with some payasam, a typical south Indian way. I had some sweet potatoes and thought of making payasam with it, though I have never heard or tasted it before and was not sure how it would taste. But it came out really good and tasted awesome. I am glad I tried it!!
