Poori Payasam

Poori payasam is such a yummy dessert. This is one lovely dessert that is often seen served in many weddings. If you are so health conscious, I would say it is better for you to stay away from this payasam as this contains full of nuts and poori. This dessert is the one which my whole family loves. If you have not tasted this earlier, please give a try and then you'l know how much you have missed this delicious payasam all these years!

10. Salt - 1/2 tsp for poori dough.

This is a lovely recipe. The fried, slightly salty poori's and the sweet milk with dry fruits. This recipe is a keeper.
