Recipe Notes
  • Adding condensed milk is optional, but it makes the payasam richer in taste.
  • When adding sweetened condensed milk, reduce the sugar, accordingly. 
  • Adding pinch of salt to payasam always makes the kheer, more tastier.
  • Saffron strands can be soaked in separate milk and you can add that milk also.
