Godhuma rava payasam is our recent favorite payasam, made with broken wheat, jaggery and milk as main ingredients.
Last year, when we saw samba godhumai rava in Mustafa, Vj told it will be nice if we make payasam with it. So I thought of trying it and bought. From then, I have made many a times, though more like a godhumai sweet kanji type. Why I say kanji because, I prepare without cardamom and cashew nuts as Vj doesn't like both. I make it with sugar too. and less milk.
Since this Friday Tamizh new year is coming up, thought of posting this special payasam as Tamil New year recipe.
