Serving Suggestion

  • Serve the pasta payasam / kheer hot or keep in refrigerator and serve.


  • Shell / Macaroni Pasta can be replaced with vermicelli (Fried with Ghee or oil) which is very famous in India called Semiya Payasam (Seviya Kheer).
  • Consistency should not be too thick, after payasam cools down it will become thicker and absorb all the liquid contents 
  • Add boiled milk to payasam and stir it when you want the payasam to be liquid again.
