ABOUT Paal payasam ! RECIPE

Paal payasam is an authentic dish often made during festivals and also served as naivedyam on fridays. During my childhood remember my granny and mom cooking this dish for hours together inorder to attain the creamy thick texture for this payasam but in this remote world who has so much time to stay and stir at such times comes my humble pressure cooker to rescue which has made all the task so simple yet no compromise with its taste or texture.
