This is a malnad style payasa and my mother prepares it in this way. She won't extract the milk. But across Udupi-Mangalore region of Karnataka, for payasa more coconut is used and coconut milk is extracted. I like both ways. Using coconut milk gives better taste. But this recipe is light for tummy and good for digestion.
