Aval Payasam

Aval Payasam
Aval Payasam

Aval / flattened rice  is an easily digestible food and you can make plenty of dishes with this Aval / poha as it get cooked very fast. This Aval payasam recipe is very easy to make and this will definitely be kids' favorite. If you want to quickly make a delicious dessert then this aval payasam is the best option for you. 

In this payasam recipe, I used Naatu sakkarai / brown sugar instead of jaggery just to check how the taste comes out with brown sugar. And I don't see much difference in taste with brown sugar. It almost tastes same as jaggery.  You can give this payasam as breakfast to toddler, just reduce the amount of jaggery or brown sugar. My kid loved it a lot.

Ingredients  (serves for 2 )

Aval / poha / flattened rice - 1/4 cup [ 1 cup size = 150 ml ]
ghee - 2 teaspoon
cashew - 5 - 6
raisins - 10 
cardamom powder - 2 pinches
boiled milk - 2 cups
jaggery or naatu sakkarai - 1/4 cup


  • heat ghee in a vessel and fry cashews and raisins to golden brown
  • take out the fried cashews and in the same pan, fry aval / flattened rice
  • once the aval is fried, add 2 cups of boiled milk
  • let it simmer for few minutes. Milk will slightly reduce and the aval will become soft
  • at this stage, add the powdered Naatu sakkarai / jaggery. [ If the jaggery has impurities, sprinkle some water in jaggery, boil it and then filter it to remove the impurities. Add the filtered jaggery water to the milk ]
  • add cardamom powder. 
  • Mix well and then switch off the flame.
  • Garnish with fried cashews and raisins
  • Once you add jaggery, there are chances that the milk may get curdled. To avoid that, either the jaggery water should be in room temperature or the milk should be in room temperature. Both should not be hot. Switch off the flame immediately once you add and mixed the jaggery to the milk.
