4.When everything is mixed together add thick coconut milk and keep in flame for just 2-3 mins and switch off.Add cardamon powder and mix.
5.Garnish it with ghee roasted cashew nuts.
Yummy and healthy paysam is ready.
1.Don't keep the papaysam in heat for long time after u add thick coconut milk,as it will be curdled.
2.As my jaggery colour was light in colour my payasam colour is light.If u use dark colour variety u will get nice dark colour pradhaman.I love that dark colour one.
3.If u wish u may grind the cooked papaya in a mixer and make.
4.cut the outer skin of papaya well if any left,the payasam won't taste sweet,it will be bitter
