Print Friendly and PDF
aval-payasam

I make this payasam every friday for pooja. This is the simplest & delicious payasam that can be made in 10-15 minutes.


INGREDIENTS


  • Thick rice flakes / poha/ Aval - 1/4 cup
  • Powdered jaggery - 1/4 cup ( + 2 tbsp - optional)
  • Milk/coconut milk - 1/4 cup
  • Cardamom seeds - 2 nos (powdered)
  • Ghee - 1 tsp
  • Water - As  reqd (around 2.5 cups)
  • Roasted Cashews - a few
For additional flavour roast in a tsp of ghee & add the following
  • Cloves /Krambu- 2 nos
  • Roasted Nutmeg powder/ Jathikkai - A pinch
  • Edible camphor / Pachai karpooram - a pinch

METHOD

  • Heat a kadai with a tbsp of ghee and roast the cashews.Set aside..
  • In the same kadai, roast the aval and cardamom together for 3-4 mins. Aval becomes crispy and turns little brown.Allow it to cool. Powder it nicely..

NOTE:
    1. U can add coconut milk for richness. But it should be added at the end before switching off the flame.
    2. If u feel sweetness is more, add little boiled milk.
    3. When u add milk along with jaggery , payasam gives a curdled look.To avoid this, add milk only at the end.
    4. If u want, u can replace jaggery with sugar.
    5. Here i've powdered the aval. If u wish, u can roast the aval and cook as it is. It will take little more time to cook.
