Happy Holi to all my readers and blogger friends. I know you might all be wondering why payasam for a colorful festival isn't it. It just that I had nothing to post for this special colorful festival but any Indian sweet is perfect for celebrating this festival isn't it. Now Coming to the payasam this is one of my fav payasam and have tasted so many versions of payasam from our neighbors. When I was kid I used love the lovely pearls in the payasam and was curious how they turn transparent. They are perfect for any occasion or goes with any meal to end up with a sweet note . On this special occasion am sharing this delicious payasam for you all.
