Ambalapuzha palpayasam / Kerala style rice pudding

Ambalapuzha Palpayasam- A famous rice dessert in Kerala that is so easy to prepare and at the same time a yummy dessert. I have already mentioned about my ummachi’s sweet craving. However bad her illness is, she manages to prepare sweet dishes if she wants to:). Her choice would be Ambalapuzha Palpayasam most of the times . The reason for this choice is due to the fact that it needs hardly any attention. As you can see in the photo, the key to decide whether it is a perfect Ambalapuzha Palpayasam is it’s peach colour. Check out the recipe…..
