Red Pumpkin Payasam

Red Pumpkin payasam (Kheer)  is a different & easy to make. The specialty of this dish is that you will never feel the essence of pumpkin. If you love the taste of custard in butterscotch flavor, then you will surely love this dish. Today I prepared this tasty payasam for saraswathi pooja. I wanted to prepare the payasam which is very simple and fast. So here's the recipe.
