Cabbage payasam and award

Preparation time: 20 mins | Cooking time: 90 mins

This might sound a little weird for some but yes it is true, cabbage can also be used to make payasams. When we were invited for lunch at our cousins place, the desert was served and she asked me to guess what it was. I couldn't tell but it tasted too good. When she revealed the secret I was very surprised. I tried the same trick to many of my guests and none of them could get it right. It is really worth the effort. Take it from me :-).

Ingredients
Cabbage-1/4 kg
Milk-1 1/2 litre
Condensed milk-100ml
Cardamom-2
Ghee-1tbsp

Method
Chop the cabbage and wash it with lukewarm water(3-4 times) until it loses its smell. Squeeze the water out and saute it in the ghee for about 5-10 mins. Keep it aside.

Now boil the milk in a thick bottomed vessel until it reduces to 3/4 the quantity. Add the cabbage and cook on slow flame till it is soft. Now add the condensed milk, mix well and cook for 10 mins. When it is slightly thick, add the cardamom powder and cook for 5 mins. You can serve it hot or cold(refrigerated) but it tastes good when it is cold.



Note: You can garnish with nuts & raisins. You can use sugar instead of condensed milk.

My fellow blogger Swarna has shared this award with me. Thank you.
