Aval Payasam Recipe
Aval Payasam is usually made for gokulashami(krishna jayanthi)...I have already posted a version of aval payasam with jaggery........this one is with sugar with coconut cashew flavour. I was planning to make aval/poha payasam recipe just like paal payasam...coincidentally my neighbour gave paasi paruppu payasam last week and it was too good to taste,and the flavour was unique too so asked her the recipe and I adapted it to suit aval payasam and here is my version  :) What are you planning to make for gokulashtami?
