It is very sweet payasam and almost everyone like the dishes of banana very much. Usually we are making different banana dishes such as banana fritters, banana chips and banana salad. We can use both ripe banana and raw banana to make tasty dishes. Now a day we are getting banana payasam in restaurants. This special payasam is using the special celebration of Onam. This payasam became very popular recently. Peoples are very interested to change the things or new things so that we are getting different new dishes and banana payasam also the new recipe. I tasted this payasam from restaurant first time and it was very tasty so I made this payasam in my house. I used jaggery syrup to get sweet first time after that I used sugar syrup and both are really tasty. Payasam is the special dish for Keralites and they are considering payasam as a special dessert for celebrations or occasions. We can use it either hot or cold and both are very tasty. It has the mixed flavours of milk, ghee and cardamom powder. To get variety taste we are mixing cooked banana in ghee for sometimes. We will get peanuts while we have this payasam. We can make this payasam in milk also but I would like to make it in coconut milk. We need not to use so many ingredients to make this dessert. We can make it very easily in less time. To balance the sweet we can use a pinch of salt to this. We can use dry ginger powder if we need another flavour and smell. It is very thick and also it has creamy texture. We can enjoy a lot with this sweet banana payasam.
