Happy New Year 2019 to all of you!!!

We all had a nice year-end vacation and after a week-long gap, I am here starting 2019 with a sweet post.

This javvarisi payasam is a South Indian version sweetened with jaggery powder. Another version which is called as Sago kheer in North uses sugar for the sweetness. I will soon post that version also.

Now let’s see about this javvarisi payasam, which is comparatively easier than any other payasam recipes. Obviously, the preparation is simpler except a single prerequisite step of soaking the javvarisi two hours ahead of making.

I used a white big variety today, but you can use thinner transparent variety also as per your choice. Whichever variety you use, soaking must be done to cook the javvarisi properly. Similarly, the cooking time of javvarisi takes a minimum of 15 minutes to maximum 20 minutes to become soft.

For any kind of jaggery based dish when we use milk proper care should be taken to avoid curdling of the milk. My tip would be to add anyone item(jaggery or milk) at last and just before switching off the stove. Never cook in high flame after the addition of jaggery and milk. Either first, add jaggery powder and finally add milk or first cook with milk and add jaggery at last before switching off. Follow this tip for any jaggery and milk based sweet recipe preparation to avoid milk curdling. In addition to that don’t add both items very hot(prefer room temperature).

Preparation:
  1. Clean and soak the javvarisi with adequate water for 2 hours. It enlarges in size hence choose the vessel accordingly.
  2. Boil milk and let it come to room temperature. I used thick full fat milk hence used as it is. If your milk is thin, you can reduce it by keeping in low flame and occasional stirring to thicken the consistency. This is an optional step. For vegan choice use soya milk or coconut milk.
  3. Powder jaggery and keep aside.

  4. Cook the javvarisi for up to 20 minutes until it becomes transparent and soft. Cooking time varies depending upon the size of the javvarisi. Check by pressing one with your fingers.

  6. Just let the javvarisi to absorb the sweetness for five minutes.
