Aval Payasam (Poha Kheer)

Which Payasam you like best? For me it’s any payasam made of milk. The more the taste of ghee comes the more I like it 🙂 . Last year for the Onam I made Palpayasm and it was much appreciated by all. This I again I wanted to make some thing with milk and I thought of giving it s try. Aval/Poha is some thing very simple in every ones mind. So when I gave this Payasam to my husband, I didn’t tell what its made of. It tasted so good that, my husband couldn’t believe its made of aval. It’s very very simple to make and taste good. If you are yet to decide what Payasam to make for Onam give it a try. You will love it for sure.
