Payasam is a type of rice or vermicelli pudding common throughout South East Asia. Ranjini Menon’s Payasam with Ripe Bananasat The Turmerica in Wayanad is a Royal Malabar cuisine dessert. What makes it different?
Ranjini says since bananas are plentiful in Wayanad, they make a great base for the pudding instead of the usual rice or vermicelli. She also finishes her pudding with a garnish of cashews and raisins. And, the final tasteful addition of cardamom, the queen of spices, sets it firmly on its Royal Malabar throne.
We hope you enjoy the video of Ranjini preparing the dish. Once you see how easy it is, we’re sure you’ll want to make it for your family soon.
