Cashew nut payasam – Diwali sweets

Cashew nut payasam

Payasam is a perfect dessert to end any South Indian meal. This Cashew nut payasam that is thick and creamy will soon be your favorite. Rich in flavors as well as in calories, this payasam is a favorite one for my kids. I first tasted it at my friend’s place and fell in love with it instantly. The addition of carrots makes it even healthier for kids. It can not only be enjoyed as a dessert but also makes a wonderful after school snack.
