Payasam is a culinary delight we cannot let stay away from our platter during any festival meal. During Mandala Kalam, the two-month long auspicious pilgrim season, we are bound to make many varieties of payasam for our friends and family who may drop in any time. Gothambu payasam is an easy to go option to treat an unexpected guest. It takes just above 30-minutes to make and it won't leave you many greasy pans and vessels in the sink to clean up afterwards. So what are you waiting for?
