Payasam Recipe

Semiya Payasam recipe is something which I used to make quite often. I was under the assumption that it is already there in my website. When I tried looking for it, I realized that I did not post it yet. So clicked pictures when I prepared it last time. Payasam is one of the default recipes in south Indian weddings. Since my childhood, I got used to the combination of payasam with papad. I just love having payasam with crushed papad in it.
