Aval payasam with sugar, aval paal payasam

Learn how to make aval payasam in cooker with sugar. Easy to prepare and rich in taste prepared using just 3 main ingredients flattened rice, sugar and milk.

I once tasted aval paal payasam in a restaurant and ever since I tasted, I wanted to try it out at home. I also wanted to prepare in cooker and see how it turns out. Instead of boiling and cooking aval in open pot boiling method, I tried giving a whistle in small pressure cooker. It turns out really creamy and rich. Actually my mom in law always makes aval payasam with sugar, in microwave. She adds very less milk, still it turns out great. She adds little milk in the end rather than cooking aval in milk. I have not made that way yet myself here, though have made under her instructions manytimes.

I get many feedback of aval payasam getting curdled while using jaggery. Adding jaggery or jaggery syrup after switching off solves this issue. Later just heat in low flame without boiling in high flame. Otherwise you can use sugar as in this aval payasam recipe.

aval payasam with sugar

Ingredients

aval, Poha – 1/4 cup
Milk – 1 & 1/2 cup
Sugar – 3 tbsp
Cashew nuts – 5
Ghee – 1 tsp
Cardamom – 1, powdered (optional)

Method

  1. Wash aval well twice to remove any dust in the aval.
  2. In a small pressure cooker, add aval and milk.
  3. Give it a whistle and open once pressure reduces. 
  4. Add sugar, cardamom and heat until the sugar dissolves. Switch off the heat.
  5. Heat ghee in a small pan, roast cashews and add to the payasam.

Notes

  • I used thin aval, so if using thick aval, give 2 whistles.
  • If the payasam is thin, just stir and heat for 3 mins on open flame. 
  • I skipped cardamom, cashew as we like just the milk flavour.
