ABOUT Rice kheer / Payasam / pudding RECIPE

Rice payasam is my paternal grand ma's recipe which she preferred to prepare usually on fridays as prasad for God and we kids used to wait eagerly for the pooja to be done as quickly as possible so tgat we can hog on to prasad as this was one of our favorite desserts !! If you religious like me you will definetely agree with the fact that when a dish is tagged with the word Prasad it definetely tastes much better !! :grinning::grinning:
