Comments

Aval Payasam is a very traditional flattened rice pudding that is made during Gokulashtami or Janmashtami Krishna Jayanthi. This payasam is made from aval also known as poha or flattened rice and is prepared in very little time. It makes a perfect dessert for the times when you are unprepared as well.
