For an exciting twist to a traditional favourite, Fernleaf engaged Chef Annette Isaac, who is part Indian and part Eurasian heritage, to create three wonderful ways to enjoy Payasam – the classic Fernleaf Payasam, Fernleaf Payasam Pudding and Fernleaf Payasam Ice Cream. The delicious desserts were given an unexpected Malaysian twist with the addition of Gula Melaka, a type of local palm sugar for added depth in flavours.

“Deepavali which is around the corner is an auspicious time to share laughter, blessings and good food with friends and family. For those who enjoy traditional desserts but are mindful of what they eat, we’ve created ideas that are not only a fun twist to the ordinary, but also healthier with the added nutrition of pure and natural dairy from New Zealand,” said Mr Soong.
