Both my husband and I love pasta, and now a days even my little one started liking Mac & Cheese. Every time I open a pasta packet I wouldn’t finish it and have some leftover. To finish the remaining uncooked pasta, I end up buying same variety of pasta again. Other day I felt like having payasam and searched for semiya, suddenly pasta pulled my attention and tried payasam with pasta. It was a big hit at home.
Macaroni – 1/3 cup
Milk – 3 cups
Condensed milk – 3 tbsp
Sugar – 3 tbsp (adjust according to your sweetness)
Saffron – A pinch
Cardamom powder – pinch
Butter/ Ghee- 1 tsp
Salt – a pinch
- Add ghee and macaroni to the pan; saute for a minute. Add 3 cups of warm milk and cook till the macaroni are fork tender
- Add saffron, condensed milk, sugar, cardamom powder and salt, continue cooking for 4 – 6 minutes and switch off. Can serve immediately or chill this overnight and serve it next day.
- Adding condensed milk gives rich creamy texture adjust the sugar accordingly
- Payasam tends to thicken more when cool down
- Usually I add cashew and raisin for payasam but other day missed to add while taking picture so I didn’t write in my recipe!
- I have used whole wheat pasta instead maida pasta can also be done
- If you are using penne, rotini, fettuccine, bow or any other pasta, cut the cooked pasta with ladle according to your taste

Ya I also do that:-)thanku
Delicious & well prepared payasam.

delicious kheer.. One of my kids favourite
That is a new idea for me to add macaroni in kheer, I am sure it is tasty.
Sorry coming after long time on your blog.
I would never have thought of this. A macaroni kheer! What a perfect fusion meal. I have to stay away from this as I’ve been obsessed with kheer for years. It literally has all of my favorite things, cardamom, saffron, condensed milk. Say no more!
Wow! you have re-defined payasam my friend! I never had payasom with macaroni! I so would like to taste it!
Thanku Savita:-) I wish I could prepare for you
