Print Friendly and PDF
aval-payasam

I make this aval payasam every Friday for Lakshmi pooja. This is the simplest & delicious payasam that can be made in 10-15 minutes.
INGREDIENTS
1 cup - 250ml

  • Thick rice flakes / poha/ Aval - 1/4 cup
  • Powdered jaggery - 1/4 cup ( + 2 tbsp - optional)
  • Boiled milk /coconut milk - 1/4 cup
  • Cardamom seeds - 2 nos (powdered)
  • Ghee - 2 tsp
  • Water - As  required (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. Clean the aval & remove the drbris if any. 
  • In the same kadai,  roast the cleaned aval and cardamom together for 3-4 mins. Aval becomes crispy and turns little brown. Allow it to cool. Powder it nicely. If you don't want to powder the aval, wash the roasted aval and cook it. But it will take extra time to cook.

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 after switching off the flame.
    4. If you want, you can replace jaggery with sugar.
    5. Here i've powdered the aval. If you wish, u can roast the aval, wash and cook as it is. It will take little more time to cook.

No need to wash the aval.pls reply me.

Chitra said...

Just clean it before roasting. If you are not grinding it, you can wash the roasted aval and cook it.
