Notes

The consistency should be neither thick nor too runny(should be able to pour in a glass tumbler and drink). Then dhal should be cooked correctly without becoming mushy. If the dhal is mushy then payasam will be too smooth in texture. You can add milk when cooking decreasing the amount of water to add richness. Even coconut milk is added in some versions which will more rich in taste.
