Recipe for delicious payasam made with sweet corn and nuts. Recipe with step by step pictures and video.



For Boiling Corn

2 sweet corn
1 liter water
1 tablespoon salt

For the Paste

2 tablespoon pistachios
2 tablespoon almonds
1/2 cup milk

Other Ingredients

1 tablespoon ghee
2 tablespoon chopped cashews
2 tablespoon raisins
500 ml milk
200 grams condensed milk
1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder
1 pinch of saffron
1/4 cup sugar


Cut the corn into two.Β  Add the corn to the cooker. Add in the water and salt. Cook the corn along with the husk as husk has a lot of flavour. Cook for 10 minutes on medium flame. Ignore the number of whistles. After 10 minutes, remove from heat and set aside for the pressure to settle. Remove the corn and let the corn cool. Discard the water used for boiling. Let the corn cool so its easy to handle. Remove the husk and separate the kernels. Remove 1/4 cup of the corn and set aside. To the remaining corn, add in the pista, almonds and little milk. We will grind this mixture to a paste. Grind this mixture to a slightly coarse paste.

Heat ghee in a thick bottomed pan and roast the cashews until golden. Add in the raisins and the reserved corn. Saute for a few minutes. Add in the ground paste and cook for a minute or two.

Add in the milk and the condensed milk. Mix well. Add in the cardamom powder and saffron. Add in the sugar. Simmer the payasam for five minutes.
