Its recipe is different than the usual payasam I will post in detail, because I have to ask the temple authorities about that . It is supplied from the temple on that day. Are you from Chennai

Aswathy, I belong to Kerala only but a Konkani. I am not familiar with all the recipes of Kerala. Our menu is slightly different.
