Talking about Payasams, no Kerala Sandhya is complete without serving a Payasam,many people are die-hard fans of Payasam irrespective of age bar. I thought Payasam making was a tedious job, till I stumbled upon Chef Sanjeev Kapoor showing a TV host show on the same in ZeeTV, he called it the' SEVIAN', I simply gave it a try and was really worth it. Nowadays I make this very often and takes only a dash 15 to 20 Min's its nothing special the same old Semiya Payasam the way I make it. it is very simple, tasty with no time at all....no long standing at the cooking range....................
