You all know my love for Kheers,and a Payasam is a different name to a kheer. While discussing dishes from Tamil Spread ,Valli told me about this caramel payasam, I wondered if it was authentic! Valli quickly cleared me on that and I decided to make this delicious payasam for my Tamil Spread. I served it chilled and wished the caramel was more prominent , but all the same everyone simply loved it.
