Recipe in my channel.

Payasam is a desert liked by most people.Different ingredients are used for different payasam. Here the main ingredient is Poori.Today I thought of sharing poori payasam with you.This has a unique taste.


  • Maida/All purpose flour : 1/4 cup
  • Milk:1/2 to 3/4 litre
  • Sugar:1/2 cup(accdg to desired taste)
  • Salt a pinch
  • Ghee or Oil for frying
  • Cardomom powder:1/4 to 1/2 tsp

cashews and raisins optional


1.Add water and a pinch of salt to maida and make a dough.Keep aside for some time.

2.Knead the dough again for few minutes to make it smooth and pliable.

3.Divide into balls.

4.Roll each ball into a thin round.

5.Cut small round ones from the bigger one using a small cap or a round cutter.

6.Heat oil/ ghee in a kadai and fry small pooris in batches.

7.Keep aside the fried pooris.

8.Now take a thick bottomed vessel and milk to it and boil.

9.Simmer till it gets thickened atleast to 3/4th quantity

10.Add sugar to it.Stir well.

11.Add cardomom powder to it.

12.Now add 3 or 4 tbs condensed milk.(If you add more reduce the quantity of sugar)

13.To the mixture add the fried pooris to it and allow it to cook for 5 to 7 mts.

Then remove from fire .Serve hot or cold.


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.
