A Sweet and tangy kerala dessert
Payasam an integral part of Kerala feast(sadya). Usually I make payasam with semiya,ada,broken wheat etc… I have already tried some kheer recipes and you can get the link here 10 Delicious Paysam recipes .
One of my friend said me about this pineapple payasam. I didn’t even heard about this before. She asked me to try this. I googled the recipe tried and it was delicious. It is very simple to make pineapple payasam. Only cooking the pineapple puree part will take time. Remaining everything is quiet easy. I made this pineapple payasam with pearl sago (chowari) . You can also make this only with pineapple. Hope you will like this recipe.
