Tried and Tasted ~ Chirote Payasa/ Appi Payasa

Appi payasa/ Chirote payasa is one of the dish served at Udupi Brahmin's wedding. This was never made at our house but we had tasted this in a lot of wedding's. I made this long time back but never got around posting it. 
Near our house back in Mangalore there is a small sweet shop. The owner of the shop makes sweets and snacks at home and has a very huge demand. One of the speciality is "Phenori". It is a maida based layered roti kind of which is deep fried and dunked in sugar syrup. Tastes best when had warm. I was never a fan of sweets until I came here. Since the availability is very very limited I started missing eating sweet. It was then that I decided to try learning to make most of the sweet dishes at home. While searching for the recipe to make Phenori I landed at Bhaatukli's blog. Her recipe of chirote was similar to our Phenori and with step by step instructions it made my job easy. 
When I first made Phenori all of them were polished off and I did not get time to click snaps. When I made the second batch I decided not to dunk them in sugar syrup but make Appey payasa as she has suggested in her blog. Both were a hit with us and our friend's. I am going to keep making this often. Thank you Tee for this wonderful recipe. Please click here for the recipe.

Payasa looks delicious Uj..great idea to use up phenoris..as you said,the moment phenoris are made they get polished off,so I have to hide some away next time I make it..;-)

Uj, this is new to me. The chirote that I know of is very different. Do you remember the Chirothi-Haalu that is served at weddings? The milk is usually a type of Baadami haalu isn't it?
