Caramel Pasta Payasam Recipe
Start with cooking the pasta. Any small pasta works well in this recipe including macaroni, small shells and elbows. I opted for macaroni but feel free to choose your favorite. Again, do not add salt while cooking the pasta. Salted pasta won’t taste good in this dessert recipe.
The base of this recipe comes from the traditional Indian kheer or payasam. Add in pasta and you have a beautiful pudding that’s going to tantalize your taste buds.
The delicious layer of caramel certainly adds a wow factor to this dish. Making caramel is pretty straightforward. Just heat sugar over low heat. Wait until caramel turns golden. Now, pour in milk. Make sure you stir constantly until the caramel dissolves and milk gets a light golden hue.
Next, stir in condensed milk and ground cardamom. Simmer for few minutes and then add ghee and plenty of nuts roasted nuts.
Heavenly dessert with your favorite pasta! Beyond delicious!
