Farina/Rava Payasam

Pin It Now!
Payasam or kheer are very popular throughout various regions of India.There are so many delicious versions of them,one such is rava or sooji payasam,where milk is thickened and cooked with rava/sooji or farina as its called in the western world.Like other versions this payasam is also easy and quick to make.

Ingredients
1/4 cup rava/farina/sooji
5 cups 1% milk
3/4-1 cup sugar
1/4 cup fried cashews
1/4 cup chopped walnuts and almonds
Cardamom powder as per taste

Method
Dry roast rava and set aside.Heat milk in a vessel and bring it to a nice boil making sure not to burn it.Mix the well roasted rava in the hot milk and stir well till the rava is cooked and the payasam thickens.Add 3/4th cup sugar first and then increase gradually as per taste while stirring well.Add the fried cashews,chopped almonds,walnuts,cardamom powder and stir well.Enjoy hot or cold.

Note:If you tend to burn the milk on the stove you can cook the milk in the microwave in a wide microwave safe vessel for about 10-15 mins,the milk should thicken a bit,then you can transfer to the stove and proceed with the method.
