Nei payasam

Nei payasam is a very simple but delicious payasam made as a neiveydhyam in many Kerala temples. This is made at my home when we conduct Bhagavath Sevai. My dad makes this payasam very well. We make in large quantities in a big uruli and distribute it to the guests who come for Bhagavath Sevai.
