This is my another successful experiment :) I listed down the wholegrains in pantry - whole wheat flour,brown rice,cracked wheat, whole grain pasta,Ragi.Corn n other legumes. I planned to make recipes with these ingredients and in the row today coming "Cracked Wheat Sweet corn Payasam". I tried this payasam similar to my kids' favorite Moongdal Payasam/Pasiparuppu Payasam. It tasted divine and i am so so happy with the experiment.  Now to the recipe...
