  • Wash potatoes and chop them into cubes. Then drop the cubes into a saucepan filled with water and place on flame. Cover and boil until the cubes gets cooked well. The potatoes should be easily mash-able. At this stage remove from flame. 
  • Take the pieces and remove the skin, then mash them well and set aside. You can optionally steam potatoes or even pressure cook them to quicken cooking. 
  • Then pour some milk into a saucepan or pot and place on flame. 
  • Let it come to a boil, then add sugar, cardamom pods and stir well. Wait until the milk gets 3/4th of its original volume, then add the mashed potatoes and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on low flame. 
  • Mix rice flour with little water and make a paste out of it. Then pour it into the payasam. Stir well and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes. (do not pour too much of water)
  • Now pour condensed milk stir well. 
  • Fry nuts in ghee until golden and add it into the payasam.
  • When done remove from flame and serve hot or chilled.

TIP 1: Rice flour is completely optional but it gives a creamy texture to the dessert and infact makes the payasam taste yummier too. 

TIP 2: If you love some extra flavor just add 1/8 tsp of rose essence into the payasam just before you remove the payasam from flame.
