    Indian Cook's Note:

    This delicious dessert only needs 5 minutes of your time. It then simmers and needs no watching! A traditional way to end a south Indian meal. This can cook while you eat the main course.

      I actually had to make some changes to this recipe to get it how I like it, but the good directions and the ease of making it gives it four stars. With the changes, I think it's a 5. I increased the sugar to 1/2 cup, otherwise it was not at all sweet enough. At 1/2 cup of sugar, it is still way less sweet than standard payasam, but I like it that way. If you use jaggery, a lesser amount will be fine. Also I would cut the ghee by a tablespoon. Too oily for our taste. And it needs a thread of saffron to make it really taste right. But a great method of preparing this dish. With the changes, this will be the way I make it from now on.
