    I love how sago cooks and shines up like pearls. There is something quite attractive about it :). Nice payasam!

    I absolutely love love jevarasi payasam, but I can never make it right. For some reason it always makes my milk curdle once I add the milk to the cooked jevarasai. Adding coconut milk is such a flavorful idea.

    I love this payasam very much. I usually add milk, but coconut milk would give a lot of flavour, right?

    Sago kheer is good in taste but it's very popular for fasting days like navratri
