Sago Payasam/Javvarisi Payasam/Sabudana Kheer

“Wishing all my lovely friends and wonderful readers a Very Happy Onam, Thiruvonam Aashamsakal”

Onam is the most important festival of the state of Kerala, India. It is a harvest festival and is celebrated with great enthusiasm by all the communities throughout Kerala. The festival is celebrated to welcome King Mahabali, whose spirit is said to visit Kerala at the time of Onam. Once again I am wishing all you a very very Happy Onam.

I am sorry my friend’s I was not keeping really well for the past 3-4 days, so was not able to visit your pages. But since today is Onam I wanted to post something really sweet and celebrate this Onam with all of you.

Here's how to make Sago/Javvarisi Payasam with step by step photos...


½ cup
3 cups
1 ½ cup
½ cup [adjust to taste]
Cashew nuts
6 -8 broken
Cardamom powder
¼ tsp
1 tsp
One pinch

Wash and soak the sago for about 2 hours and then drain the water. In a sauce pan boil about 3 cups of water and add the soaked sago to it.  Cook for about 4 – 5 minutes or until the sago is soft.

Meanwhile boil the milk separately and keep it aside. In a pan heat one tsp of ghee and fry the cashew nuts, raisins and keep them aside.

Now add the sugar, a pinch of salt to the cooked sago and stir it really well. Add the boiled milk and keep stirring for another 3 minutes. Make sure the stove is in low flame.

Add the cardamom powder, fried cashew nuts, raisins and cook for another 3 minutes.

Delicious and yummy Javvarisi payasam is ready, serve it either hot or cold.
