Vermicelli - payasam
This is my favourite payasam.I made it yesterday for my birthday Winking smile and i enjoyed every mouth to the coreSmile with tongue out.. Its very easy and can be made in jiffy. Many variations can be made to this payasam recipe by adding finely chopped nuts or badam powder or saffron milk , condensed milk and it tastes more delicious. Its a simple but rich dessert.. I hope most of u have this post in ur blog. I do have this recipe in my Kerala Onam sadya post using milk.. Here i have shared the basic method .Do try n let me know ur feedback..
