At first pour milk to a pressure cooker and allow to boil ,stirring occasionally.
When started boiling close the cooker and cook the milk in very very low flame for 1hour ..
Then switch off the fire and let the pressure settle down.
Mean while boil water in a vessel and then add the ada .Cook till the ada become very soft to touch ..
Then remove from the fire and drain it ..Pour plenty of water on to the cooked ada ..Drain and Cool well …
When it done remove from the ghee and keep that aside …
Take a Uruli or deep bottomed nonstick kadai and heat the ghee and add the cooked ada.
 Stir well for 5 min in medium heat   and then add sugar (according to ut taste ) and salt …
Stir well for 15 to 20 minutes .

(.Have to stir min half an hour) … ..Don`t make it very thick ..Make medium consistency payasam .
It  is tastier than thick payasam (anyway that depends up on ur taste)…
