Arisi paruppu payasam is one staple recipe made during festive occasions (with coconut milk) by my mom and also every friday a simpler version of this. I am not sure how I forgot this payasam. Last time, I made this for a festival and after long time, I enjoyed making and having this childhood favourite payasam. As a kid, it have not been much special or exciting to me, but after years, when I remembered and made this, tasted this, really loved it and realised how good it is and how I had liked it. So from that time I wanted to post this and tried to post last week, but could not. So this week I decided to post this.
My mom makes this with coconut milk for festivals and for fridays, she powders this coarsely and makes it with milk – a quicker version for the weekly version.
Serve hot or cold as per your wish, I prefer hot.
