Wash and soak the rice for 30-40 minutes.

Preparing Jaggery Syrup
Grate the jaggery and add it sauce pan. Add ¼ cup of water to the jaggery and mix really well. Then heat it up, let it boil until it is slightly thick [No string consistency is required]. Switch off the stove.

Filter the jaggery syrup through a strainer to get rid of any impurities.

Preparing Payasam

Add the soaked rice, grated coconut to the mixer and grind it together with little water [about ¼ cup or little more] to make a paste.

Boil about 2 ½ cups of water in a pan/kadai.

Add the coconut rice paste and let it cook in medium flame for about 10-12 minutes. Make sure you are stirring continuously to avoid sticking to the bottom of the pan.

Once the rice is cooked soft, the mixture will attain porridge consistency.

At this stage, add the jaggery syrup/vellam syrup and mix it well until well combined.

Let it cook for another 2-3 minutes, at this stage add cardamom powder/Elachi Powderand mix well and switch off the stove.

Heat ghee in a small pan, roast the cashew nuts once it starts to turn light golden brown, add raisins fry for few seconds and switch off the stove.

Now add the boiled and cooled milk to the payasam, mix it well. Then add the fried cashew nuts & raisins to the payasam and give a quick stir.

Yes, delicious, healthy and tempting traditional Thengai Payasam is ready for neivedhyam or to be enjoyed.

Addition of milk is optional; you can skip milk if you don’t want to add it.
The payasam will thicken as it cools down, so at that time you can add little milk and thin it down.
Boil and cool down the milk before adding it to the payasam.

Do not grind the rice coconut mixture to a fine paste, it should be coarse only then the paysam will have the texture.
