Ingredients for Sugar based Payasam/Rasayana:

  • Honeydew Melon – 1 medium sized
  • Milk – 2 cups
  • Sugar – 2 Tbsp
  • Cardamom powder – 1/2 tsp

How to Prepare:

Boil Milk and keep it aside to cool.

Initially cut the Honeydew Melon into 4 big pieces. Remove the seeds from the fruit. Take one piece in hand and cut the fruits into a small square pieces (cut lengthwise and widthwise to obtain square shape) with the help of knife till you reach the outer skin. Discard the outer skin of the fruit. With this method, it is easier to extract the pulp of the fruit since peeling out the skin directly is often difficult when the Honey Dew Melon is really ripe.

In a vessel, add cut fruits and Sugar and keep it that way for 10 min so that the Sugar dissolves to mix with the Honey Dew Melon fruit.

Now add the boiled and then cooled Milk, Cardamom powder and mix well.

The Honeydew Melon Payasam/Rasayana is ready to serve.

If you prefer, store it in the refrigerator to serve chilled.
