There are several varieties of 'payasams'. Payasam is a traditional South Indian delicacy made on all festive occasions.We prepare Payasam as ‘Prasadam’(offering to God). This mouthwatering sweet dish is prepared of coconut milk , jaggery and broken wheat.

Ingredients:-

250 gms Broken Wheat
500 gms Jaggery
3 tblsp Ghee
10 gms Raisins
10 gms Cashew Nuts
2 Coconuts
5 gms Cardamom
10 gms Dry ginger powder
10 gms Cumin Powder


Method:-

  • Grate the coconut. Add 1/2 glass warm water to the grated coconut. Extract the first coconut milk by filtering the mixture of coconut and water.
  • Extract the second milk by adding 1 1/2 glass warm water. Repeat the process to extract the third milk.
  • Saute broken wheat lightly in one teaspoon ghee.
  • Cook the brown wheat in 1 1/2 liters of water.
  • Add the third milk and the second milk to the wheat and bring to a boil.
  • Let the mixture thicken to a semi solid consistency then add powdered jaggery.
  • Finally add the first milk and simmer it for a while.
  • Season it with fried nut, raisins, powdered cardamom, ginger and cumin.
  • Stir well and remove from fire immediately.
