Need To Have
- Nungu/ Palm Fruit - 3 medium sized
- Sugar - 2 to 3 tablespoons
- Boiled & Chilled Milk - 1 cup
- Cardamom - 2 small ones
Peel the nungu, the peeled nungu will look as shown in the picture. Roughly chop them and grind them with the sugar into a smooth paste.
Take the inner pods from the cardamom, powder and keep it. Take the chilled milk and add the ground nungu paste and cardamom powder, mix it well and enjoy.
Removing the outer skin from the nungu is a messy job, do it gently.
The ground nungu paste will be floating on the milk, and it just melts in the mouth when you eat the payasam.
I didn't use the very hard nungu, I used the ones that were soft but very slightly hard, if you grind the very soft ones, the paste will be watery.
