In this section we are going to see many varities of payasams. As for as I know, North Indians like sweets very much but they prepare limited varities of payasams. But we South Indians, used to prepare many varities of payasams. Already I have given 3 payasams in Krishna Jayanthi thread. So let us see other types here. 1. Pal Payasam 2. Aval Payasam 3. Akkaravadisal 4. Coconut Milk Payasam (Thenga pal payasam) Ingredients: 1 coconut 1/2 sp rice 1 cup sugar 1/2 sp cardamom powder 1/4 sp kesari colour optional Method: Grate coconut and put that in a mixie with rice. Grind with some water. Strain and remove milk and keep aside. This the first and thick milk. Again put the coconut and pour 1 cup water and do the same. This is 2nd milk. Now in a deep pan pour the second milk and bring it to a boil. Add sugar mix well. add cardamom powder and kesari colour. Mix well and agin bring it to a boil. Add first milk and before it starts boiling remove from the stove. Add fried cashew nuts if you want. This is a very tasty and simple payasam . we call it as 'thenga pal payasam'. You can add jaggery instead of sugar. Generally we prepare this on 1 st of 'Aadi ' month. And we give this payasam to our new son in law in a silver tumbler. This is very important to us.
