      Innovative way to use dalia in Payasam form . Generally dalia means ,we think of savory version like khichdi or upma ,but making kheer that too with jaggery is a very healthy choice. I have made sheera using wheat rava ,now will definitely make dalia paysam .

    Dalia payasam looks so tempting Jayashree. I love using dalia so wouldn’t mind trying this recipe at all. It also reminds me of the Gujarati Lapsi which is prepared in a similar fashion but with water and its usually dryish.
