My Hubby loves this payasam. He says the best thing about this payasam is the feel of coconut flesh with every spoon.
There are many ways of preparing this one. I follow this method most of the times as this is v tasty and v easy to make. I feel, once in a while we should forget diet conciousness and treat our tastebuds to this delicious sweet.
Elaneer Payasam / Tender Coconut Kheer
Tender coconut water – 3 Cups (you may consider taking 2 tender coconuts)
Tender coconut flesh – taken from 3 coconuts
Condensed Milk – 150 ml
Coconut milk – 150 ml
Milk – 1 cup
Sugar – 3 spoons
Elachi powder – ¼ spoon
Dry fruits like cashews, pistha & almonds – as reqd
Boil milk and allow it to cool.
Cut half portion of the tender coconut flesh into small pieces. Grind the remaining flesh along with coconut milk & Sugar in a mixie.
When it is well blended add milk, condensed milk, elachi powder and the finely chopped pieces of tender coconut flesh.
Fry the dry fruits in ghee and add it to the payasam.
(It is good to cut some portion of the tender coconut flesh and add it the payasam as it gives a nice taste when we chew the coconut flesh)
