Mission Paal Payasam!

Ok so Happy Onam to all. Although there no big celebration here at Mumbai for Onam I like to soak into the spirit of the festive season in my own small ways, like this when I decided to make "Paal payasam" for my collegues at work . So the entire afternoon sacrificing my beauty sleep half way through it I got down to "Misson Paal payasam". You need to also keep in mind this was my first attempt at making a paal payasam.

So puffing and fretting I toiled myself in the kitchen to make the most sweetest and milkiest paal payasam. Although a bit cautious about the outcome at first, the payasam turned out to be good. 2 Big dabba was filled with Paal payasam , all set to be transported to the office on the auspicitious day - Onam.

When the car came to pick me up I thought I had everything in place but I failed to take the paal payasam with me. Since I had promised my collegues I didnt want to disappoint them so finally I went all the way back home to get the paal payasam and my collegues clearly enjoyed it the final drop . Happy Onam once again! .

That's so nice of you to share the occasion with colleagues. But I thought paal ada pradhaman was the 'intended' dish for the day. Btw, how did the pookalam turn out? Would be great if you can post the pics too.

Happy Onam :) I missed having Payasam this year though- sadly for me it was just another holiday. You had a nice time, no?!

This is a little late but Happy Onam! Mallu kutty with the payasam! Christ, I wish I worked in your office. :)

I did my Masters in Hyderabad where there were a considerable number of Malyalees (and many among them close friends) and I had such a blast. They had this one Onam celebration where we were served on banana leaves - the whole shindig. *Sigh*... I miss the food!

Am glad your Onam was lovely!
