Sweets, which are considered as desserts in most cultures, are served at the beginning of a South Indian meal! Be it Chakra Pongal or Paal Payasam, Mysore Pak or Rava Laddoo, South Indian cuisine has a wide range of unique sweets, which can broadly be classified as those made with jaggery and those made with sugar.

Every household has its favourites, and its unique style of preparing these sweets. Apart from being made to celebrate special occasions and to serve at weddings, many households also have the practice of regularly making sweets and kheers (payasam) to offer to God on Fridays and other auspicious days. No doubt, this section has a lot of exciting treats in store for your sweet tooth.

Paal Payasam is a must-serve item during south Indian festivals, weddings and other auspicious occasions. Made of rice cooked in full-fat milk and sweetened with sugar, this kheer has a very rich flavour and creamy texture, which are boosted further by spices like cardamom and saffron. This South Indian Rice Kheer is something that kids and adults look forward to enjoying on special occasions.
