Since one tin condensed milk is used, this payasam is rich and has a creamy texture.If you prefer less creamier payasam substitute condensed milk with 2 cups sugar.Keep in mind, that payasam tends to thicken as it rests. Also, the condensed milk makes it creamy. If you prefer a less thick consistency, heat the 1/2 cup milk in microwave for a min and add it in the end. Cook for 4-5 mins.
