  Aval Payasam recipe
  Every Friday my mom makes some payasam and does  vilakku pooja, till date. so I have had this gazillion times before marriage. After marriage, I would have made 4 or 5 times,only when some one visits for lunch. Its very easy to make and ready in less time comparatively(I always stick,adapt the easier one,lazy me ;) ). I have seen my mom-in-law making this in microwave oven and she adds sugar,while my mom adds jaggery. I am loving the jaggery version now a days..hmm..strange…! I used to love the sugar version when my mom used to make!! Taste always keeps on changing for me!!

I have given microwave version,step wise picture. But also the method for stove top method,adopt which ever you are comfortable with!!

Aval payasam recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Sweets/ dessert
Prep Time: 5 mins    |  Cook time: 10 mins    Serves: 2

Ingredients


Aval/rice flakes/poha  1/2 cup 
Jaggery  1/4 cup + 2 tblsp(adjust as per your taste) 
Milk  1 cup 
cardamom powder  A pinch 
cashews,raisins( I didn't add)  As per your taste 
Ghee  A tsp 

Method:(For microwave oven)

  1. Take a microwavable glass bowl large enough to hold the boiling milk.
  2. Take the aval and mix half tsp ghee with it and micro wave in high for 2 minutes .Stir in between to ensure even frying.
  3. Mix with ghee Fired
  4. Add 1/2 cup of milk, microwave in medium for 3 minutes. By the time it ends,all the milk would have been absorbed by aval.
  5. Add 1/2 more cup to the aval and again cook in microwave medium for 3 minutes. By now the aval would have got cooked.
  6. Add powdered jaggery,elachi and mix well. The jagerry will get dissolved in that heat itself.
  7. Add milkCookCooked Add jaggery
  8. Add more milk to get the desired consistency and just heat for 1 minute in  microwave medium.
  9. Let it stand for a minute and stir well.
  10. In another microwavable glass bowl,coat the broken cashews with ghee and microwave in high till golden brown,hardly takes time within a minute. And mix it with the payasam.

Aval Payasam

This was this Friday's payasam at home :)



Method:(For stove top method)

  1. Heat a pan with tsp of ghee and fry the cashews till golden brown and in the same pan,add the aval and fry till golden brown.
  2. Boil milk and add the fried aval to it and cook in medium flame till  the aval is done.
  3. Add the jaggery,elachi and mix well,add milk if needed and mix well in low flame. Don’t boil more than a minute as there are chances of curdling of milk.
  4. Sinfully delicious payasam is ready in minutes :)
Aval Payasam
Notes:
  • I have shown here with 1/4 cup of Aval(but mentioned the recipe for 1/2 cup)
  • If you want to make it super fast,you can just coarsely grind the poha after frying and make,will be done in no time!
  • The jaggery amount is approximate,adjust as per your taste.
  • If you feel the jaggery you are using has impurities,you can make syrup and filter the impurities and use for the payasam.

  67. Hey Raks, just tried your aval payasam, it turned out pretty well...taste was just awesome!!!

    ReplyDelete
  68. i made this. It was working fine till I added the jaggery and then the milk. The milk split when I microwaved it. Despite that it tasted good, but of course affected the look. What should I do?

    ReplyDelete
  69. After adding jaggery do not boil with milk, you can just heat in low heat ....
