Yesterday was my brother’s birthday. After a really long time, I am not with him on his birthday. He is in Sweden on a short term assignment. We all missed you dear brother. Even though he is there, I decided to make something sweet to celebrate his birthday here. So here is a very simple payasam from Bhayashri’s space – Taste Buds with whom I have been paired for this week’s blog hop.
This payasam was something very similar to the Goduma Rava Dalia which my mom makes on Ekadashi. She also adds some Split moong dal to it and adds more milk. But today I decided to stick to Bhagyashri’s recipe. The outcome was quite delicious. I really liked the pudding like thick and creamy consistency of the payasam.
So here is Godhi Kuttida Payasa, especially made for my dearest brother.
Makes: 5 to 6 small servings
What you’ll need
1. Broken Wheat/Lapsi – 1 cup
2. Milk – 2 cups
3. Jaggery Powdered – 1 cup
4. Cardamom Powder – a little
5. Cashews – a few
6. Raisins – a few
7. Ghee/Clarified Butter – 2 tsps
Pressure cook the broken wheat in a cup of water for about 2 whistles.
Transfer the cooked wheat into a deep vessel, add the powdered jaggery. Mix well and keep stirring till the jaggery is completely dissolved and the whole thing starts boiling.
Now add the milk and stir continuously on med heat for a few minutes or till the milk is reduced a little.
Fry the cashew nuts and raisins in a little ghee and add it on top. Also add the cardamom powder. Mix well.
Yummy Payasam is ready to be served.
