Points to remember:

  • If pooris are fried in ghee it will enhance its taste.
  • If there is less time to make small round pooris then make bigger ones and cut into small ones.
  • When poori payasam cools it will become thick.
  • Frying cashews and raisins is optional.
  • When you have payasam one should get poori pieces while chewing.

Left over pooris too can be used for this.

Try this and let me know .

This will be a kids favourite dessert.
