‘Happy Janmashtmi’ to all my readers!
Ingredients (Serves 3)
- Aval / poha / rice flakes – 1/2 cup (I used brown matta rice flakes)
- Milk – 2 cups
- Sugar or grated jaggery – 1/4 cup + 2 – 3 tbsp
- Cashews – 1 tbsp
- Raisins – 1 tbsp
- Cardamom powder – 1 pinch
- Ghee – 1 tbsp
1. Heat 1 tbsp ghee in a pan at medium heat. Fry cashews until golden. Drain on to a paper towel. Next fry raisins until plump and drain. To the remaining ghee, add aval/poha and fry for 2 – 3 minutes. Switch off and set aside.
2. Meanwhile boil milk in a heavy-bottomed vessel. Simmer for about 10 minutes. Add fried poha and cook for about 7 – 10 minutes until poha is done and payasam is thick. Add sugar/ grated jaggery, mix well and cook until it melts completely. If the payasam is very thick, add 1/4 cup hot milk and cook for a minute. Finally add fried cashews, raisins and cardamom powder. Mix well and switch off. Serve warm or cold. Its simple, easy to prepare and delicious too! Enjoy!

Just made this! Thanks so much for the recipe-I was wondering what to make with my aval other than the usual aval nanachathu. Will only be tasting it after our evening puja-will let you know how it turns out! Happy Janmashtami to you!!
You’re welcome! I hope you and your family enjoyed it. You can also make aval vilayichathu with aval – will share the recipe soon..
It’s official-this payasam is delicious!!! Thanks again for the recipe! Look forward to aval vilayichathu!
You’re welcome! 🙂 Hope you continue to enjoy my recipes..
I made the Aval Payasam and it turned out to be really Yummy.. Just like the name of your site!. The cold version is more delicious 🙂 Thanks for the receipe!
Thanks for taking time to write here 🙂 Really happy to know that you enjoyed this payasam..
Made it today and it was yummy. Perfect dessert for today.Happy Krishna Jayanthi!
Thanks for your feedback, Divya checi 🙂 Great to know that you liked it!
Very rich and droolworthy payasam,love to finish that cup..
Thanks again for another yummy treat… Tried this yesterday, it was very delicious… The only change I made is reduced the amount of sugar and added half a tin of condensed milk at the end… But I was just wondering why did you suggest the Jaggery in the recipe for a milk payasam (My understanding is we use Jaggery with coconut milk only for whatever reasons… 🙂 ) Have you tried with Jaggery? Does that taste better? Thought will check with you and then make the Jaggery version next time 🙂
will the aval float as seen in the picture? .i used to add chowary to get the consistency right or else the aval may settle at the bottom.
Very delicious and easy to cook too….thankyou Maya for sharing this
