Payasam tasted heavenly... Thanks for posting a simple and delicious recipe. The suggestion of frying rice in ghee was the best.

The issue is that it has become watery.why is that? is 4 glasses of milk too much?

vijaylakshmiHi sneha...iam wondering why it turned out watery...4 glass of milk and a glass of sugar for a hanful of rice,..I have been following this and it comes out perfect each time.

JayanHandful as in using both hands?

VijaylakshmiSingle handful.

ArunIt came out very good. I kept the weight on and simmered it after first whistle. (I missed to remove). However, it was delicious in taste and texture was apt. (I think Sneha may have small palm:))
