Me and my mom had aval payasam in krishna temple at my home town. Usually, they offer aval payasam as a prasadam on saturdays at 11'O clock. It was watery and had mild sweetness. I always wanted to go during that time especially for aval payasam :). My mom tried the same at home and it came out so well. I am also making this payasam often for poojas as an offering to god. It is a very simple and quick sweet recipe.

NOTES

Payasam consistency is totally of your choice. You can thicker the payasam to make it like a kheer and add few strands of saffron to it.

I made this payasam with less sugar. You can increase the quantity according to your taste.

If you want, you can also slightly roast aval with little ghee before adding it to the milk.

Sweet and simple aval payasam is ready to eat.
