Payasam is an Indian sweet pudding sort of dessert. The goodness that comes along with this dessert proven to be nutritious because of the Fox millet or Thinai and rice and moong dal powder. Fox millet has a lot of protein when compared to other plant based food. So, I believe it is a guilt free dessert that you can prep up easily with the ingredients you have in your kitchen pantry. Plus, I have used jaggery (Vellam) or Indian brown sugar as a natural sweetener which is high in iron. Aromatic spices like cardamom and saffron are good for your digestion and gives natural color without any artificial food color and preservatives. This recipe is really forgiving, you can improvise and substitute with unsweetened almond milk to keep the dessert gluten free. The aromatic spices can be replaced by vanilla bean paste to give the pudding custard like flavor and taste. Do give a try because it is a healthy delicious dessert to start your day with a smile.
