Step 1

Dry roast the dhal in a thick bottomed pan, till it turns light brown.

Step 2

Pressure cook the roasted dhal along with sufficient water.

Step 3

Heat up a pan (preferably Urali).

4)Dissolve jaggery in it and strain to get rid of the unwanted bits and pieces.

Step 4

Keep the filtered jaggery solution on fire and add the cooked dhal to it.

Step 5

Add ghee in between and stir continuously.

Step 6

Grate the coconuts and extract 2 cups of thick coconut milk, 6 cups of thin coconut milk and 10 cups of very thin coconut milk.

Step 7

When the water content in the pan has completely evaporated, add the thinnest version of coconut milk which is about 10 cups. Mix well.

Step 8

Clean sabudana well and mix it well with a little coconut milk.

Step 9

Add it to the pan and mix well again.

Step 10

When the payasam boils and finally gets reduced, add the 6 cups of thin coconut milk.

Step 11

When sabudana gets cooked and the payasam gets reduced again, add cardamom powder mixed with the thick milk. Mix well.

Step 12

:- Do not boil. Just heat it through.

Step 13

Fry the coconut pieces, cashews and raisins in ghee.

Step 14

Add it to the payasam and mix well.

Step 15

:- You can also add Dry ginger(Chukku) and powdered cumin seeds, if desired for a different flavour.

I really liked the recipe..came out well..thank You so much


I was looking for a payasaam recipe for my Mum`s aanda and I chance upon this which is the closest to what she would make. I would love to make it but the coconut pieces for garnishing are not readily available in here, though somehow she would have it. Thank you for bringing warm payasaam memories with my Mum.


I didn`t add subudana.. It came out very well.. My hubby liked it a lot.. Thanks :)


i made it for the first was very yummy.


The Saboodana cannot be cooked in the Jaggery. So we need to cook Saboodana seperately and then add in the payasam.
