By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Wow !!!!!!!!!!!!! this was the expression my makkal gave me when i said Pasta Payasam. Thought of trying it out on my own, without peeping the Net. Considering my experience with Microwave Cooking, coz its been only a month since i got my oven:), i was jus praying / bribing god to make the dish come good.
Thanks to God, It came out great.

Here's the recipe

One tight Fist Pasta (Small / Mini Variety) i think mine is called mini rigatte
1 cup milk
1 / 4 cup sugar
1 tbsp ghee (Call it healthy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
1 or 2 tbsp Dessicated coconut
cardamom, cinnamon - 1 / 4 tsp each

Garnishing Silvered Almonds and Cashewnuts

In a Microwave Safe Deep Bowl add Ghee and pasta and Cook @ high for 2 minutes, this will actually roast the pata. Stir Inbetween.

Add Milk and Microwave high for 7-8 minutes or till the pasta cooks. Stir in between.
Add sugar and Microwave high/80 for 2 minutes
Add Cinnamon, Cardamom, Nuts and Coconut and microwave high for 2 minutes
Thats it, done, in 15 minutes.

  3. Great Blogspot. It is not easy cooking. When someone does something with ease, that shows that the person is totally in control and an expert in what he or she is doing. i can see one such perfomer here. As someone said cooking is an art, then you are a Performer.
