Aval Payasam/Rice Flakes Payasam/Poha Payasam

Aval Payasam/Rice Flakes Payasam/Poha Payasam is a very simple payasam made with aval and milk. It is lord Krishna’s favorite and I make it during Krishna Jayanthi and many other occasions. It is especially served in Guruvayur as prashad to everybody. It is our families all time favorite payasam.

Here’s how to make it with step by step photos...


Ingredients

Aval or Rice flakes or Poha
1 cup
Milk
3 ½ cups
Sugar
¾  to 1 cup (adjust to taste)
Coconut milk
½ cup
Cardamom powder
¼ tsp
Cashew nuts
5-10
Ghee
1 tbsp
Raisins
10

Method

Take rice flakes/aval in a bowl, add water soak for about 3-5 min and squeeze out all the water and keep it aside.


In a pan heat ghee, add cashew nuts sauté until light golden color, add raisins and sauté for 20 sec. Keep it aside.

In a thick bottomed pan boil the milk, add the squeezed aval. It cooks in about 2 to 3min. Now add sugar, cardamom powder, coconut milk, fried cashews, raisins along with the ghee. Let it boil for another 5 to 7 min.


Yummy Aval/Riceflakes  payasam is ready to be enjoyed.


Suggestions:

You can roast the aval and add it milk, instead of soaking in water.
Instead of sugar you can add jaggery which is also very delicious.
You can skip adding coconut milk as well replace it with whole milk.

    1. Hi Lakshmi,
      Thanks for trying the aval payasam, I am happy that it turned out great. The procedure you did was absolutely correct, as time goes it will get litte thicker. you can just add more milk before serving. IF you have it hot, it will be exactly like the one in Guruvayur temple [just add more milk], you can have it also cold, but I prefer it hot.
      Thanks a lot for contacting me, and letting me know.
      Regards
