Many varieties of payasam are there, but this must be the easiest payasam or dessert in all. And it requires hardly 10 minutes time for preparing the this recipe.

Further, There are more variations in the recipe, In Kerala Cuisine, usually they prepare it for Onam festival. that is also known as Pazham Pradhaman, but the preparation and taste may vary from region to region.
