A popular dessert in southern India. It is a traditional sweet served on any occasion and goes by the name 'Payasam'. A meal isn't usually complete without this pudding. Quite easy to make, the recipe is from my granny. She was an expert cook and every time I make this dish, it reminds me of her warm smile and love for us.
Also the saffron used in the dish, is high in iron. This is a great way to increase your iron intake. You can replace the sugar in the recipe with sugar free. You can also replace milk with sweetened condensed milk. If you are using condensed milk, make sugar or sugar free to be 1/2 cup.
