  • Variations You Can Make:

    Palmyra ( Nungu)- You can make this recipe using Palmyra. This taste delicious because of the texture & taste of Palmyra.

    Elaneer Payasam with Jaggery: Firstly,  Take 1/2 cup jaggery and water in the saucepan, stir over medium heat until the jaggery completely dissolves and it slightly thickens. Strain the mixture and keep it aside. This can be replaced instead of condensed milk. 

    Nuts: You can add any nuts like almonds, cashews, raisins of your choice. 

  • How do you Serve Tender coconut Kheer?

    This can be served either cold or hot. My personal favourite is to have a chilled tender coconut payasam. 

    *How do you store Elaneer payasam?

    Keep them in the refrigerator for 3 days. I have kept this elaneer payasam in the freezer it keeps well for a week. Since it has thickened it has become more creamy and tasted like Kulfi.
