Aval Payasam

When I searched for Ugadi recipes in net , I found this payasam is made on that day wanted to share this recipe as Ugadi falls on 23rd. march (friday) Will try to share more ugadi related recipes ...

Ingredients needed :
  • Aval (Thin flakes ) - 1 cup
  • Milk - 2 cups
  • Jaggery  - 3/4 cup
  • Elachi powder  - little
  • Raisins , Cashews - 10 
  • Ghee - 1 tsp.

Method :

Soak aval / poha in water for few mins ...till it becomes soft ...

Heat the pan + a tsp. of ghee and fry the cashews and raisins and keep it aside, now add jaggery + little water and allow it to boil well till the jaggery dissolves ...then strain the jaggery water inorder to remove any impurities , wash the pan also with plain water once

now boil the milk and when it starts to boil add the soaked aval and allow it to cook well ...after few mins add the jaggery water and allow it to cook well till done ...switch of the flame and add the elachi powder + fried cashews , raisins. 

you can even skip cashews and raisins and just add few cherry and serve hot or cold ..if u wish u can add more milk while serving ...
