“elite payasams”


sago, doesnt feature on that list, says Uma.

humbled. i reviewed my list again. after hours of salivating i’ve arrived at my top 3.

hot paal payasam
hot samea payasam
and cold badamkheer

i would hate it if milkmaid feels left out of this sugarfest. any payasam that has been enriched by milkmaid would also fall into the top 3.

  1. Not milkmaid itself, unadulterated by anything healthy, crunchy,nutty,carbohydraty?

    I sneak trips to the fridge with a spoon hidden in my pocket. My secret desire- make the can of milkmaid the centre piece of the feast laid out on the table.

    • i couldnt bear to reply to this comment without being properly equipped. . a visit to the store and we are now a milkmaid-rich household.
      the je ne sais quoi feeling is now going away

  2. oh yaaaaaaa…I think I will place the badamkheer on the top πŸ™‚
    @surabhi: of course milkmaid is supposed to be the centre piece of the feast..I plan to do that when I ever give a feast to anyone in my lifetime..Dessert – just open a tin of milkmaid πŸ™‚

  3. you don’t like them pradhamans?? 😦 the paal ada and the chakka pradhaman top my list of favourites… for a change i made carrot payasam recently with nestle condensed milk (we don’t get Milkmaid here) and it tasted good, if i may say so myself!

    • not a great fan of malai in childhood…
      so that backspaces all the ada payasams.
      but i could try once more now that i am an adult…:-)

  4. been a reader of your blog but this made me comment πŸ˜€

    khus khus payasam, vella payasam with moong dhaal and ofcourse the pradhamans..
    I am biased towards brown payasams πŸ˜‰

    • isnt that too much like sakkarai pongal. will try it out for ganesh chathurthi and let you know whether it falls on my list…:-)

      • Yup, SP that failed to set into pongal state πŸ™‚ still love it though, esp the versions served by madams or very traditional weddings, flavored with pachai karpooram.

  5. samea reads like how phirangs pronounce my name πŸ˜› Like someone’s commented semia or semiya is better.

    Again like in one of the comments, I will like to re-order the list, add ‘Ada pradhaman’ and leave badam kheer for now. Badam halwa is better πŸ˜€

  6. the 50% mallu in me wants to add the oh so yummy pradamans – paal ada pradaman and chakka pradaman.

    I like the paal payasam with red/ brown rice…gives a really nice flavour. Since cooking this is cumbersome, I once tried the brown aval in paal payasam and the result was quite impressive.

    Totally agree on the Milkmaid point….
