Pasta Payasam / Pasta Kheer

Hi my all friends. Today is Pongal and I wish you all a very happy and prosperous pongal.

Though the day is busy, found little time to post one of my favorite recipe - Pasta Payasam. You can do it with any kind of pasta, but with shell pasta, i feel it tastes heavenly. Here comes the recipe....

  • Shell Pasta / Macroni - 2 cups
  • Water - 2 cups
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk - 1 can
  • Salt - 1 to 2 pinch
  • Ghee - 2 tsp
  • Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Cashews - few
  • Raisins - few
  • Saffron Strands - few

  • Boil the water and put the pasta, salt, ghee and bring to boil.
  • The pasta should be half to 3/4th cooked.
  • Now add the condensed milk and stir continously.
  • Add the cardamom powder and saffron.
  • When the pasta is fully cooked, switch off.
  • Separately, fry the cashews and raisins in ghee and put in pasta payasam and mix well.
  • Garnish with some more saffrons.
  • Pasta Payasam is ready to be served as hot or cold.
