This is one of the famous sweet dish of Kerala. I dono the recipe I have given is exactly match to the original one.

My husband’s Keralite friend was inviting us for lunch on last year Onam. We had a nice time and delicious dishes of Kerala there. This was also one the item they served us. I learnt this from them only.
Then I totally had forgotten to try this. Oh! a year over, this year also they have invited but we could not go there as my husband was held up in some other work that day and we missed the delish dishes. Then I thought to prepare at least this payasam on this Onam day.
I could not remember the exact recipe; I think she used coconut milk instead. I imprecisely made some changes and this also turned so good and we liked it.. Now waiting for yr comments on this moderated recipe. Hope I get sooooooooon……

Rice flakes 1/2 cup
Milk –5 cups
Sugar 2 cups
Sweetened Condensed milk - 3 tsp
Cashew,raisins for garnishing .

Cook the rice flakes in 2 cups of milk until it get soft.
Add remaining milk and bring to boil .Keep boiling in low flame til the milk reduces to 2/3 rd.
Add condensed milk and sugar (reduce or add the quantity according to yr taste). Let it boil for 10 mts.
Now u can have the thicken consistency of payasam.
Fry cashews and raisins in little ghee and garnish the payasam.
