Aval Payasam / Rice flakes

 

 

Aval Payasam

‘Happy Janmashtmi’ to all my readers!

Ingredients (Serves 3)

  1. Aval / poha / rice flakes – 1/2 cup (I used brown matta rice flakes)
  2. Milk – 2 cups
  3. Sugar or grated jaggery – 1/4 cup + 2 – 3 tbsp
  4. Cashews – 1 tbsp
  5. Raisins – 1 tbsp
  6. Cardamom powder – 1 pinch
  7. Ghee – 1 tbsp

Method

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!!

  • Hi Maya,

    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 🙂

    Thanks again…
