Aval (Rice Flakes) Payasam for Onam

Wishing all my friends a very Happy Onam !!!

This time for onam I prepared this aval payasam for the first time. The previous day I saw this in TV and I found it to be easy and looked delicious, so thought of trying and with the help of my MIL, I  prepared this.

This is a traditional dessert of Kerala. Payasam is an integral part of onam sadhya. Be it palada pradhaman/ parippu pradhaman/ paal payasam, all of the payasams are served along with sadhya. Hope you all had a nice and happy onam.

  1. Aval/ Rice Flakes- 1 cup
  2. Ghee- 2 tbsp
  3. Jaggery- ¼ Cup
  4. Coconut milk (thick milk)- ½ Cup
  5. Coconut Milk (thin milk)- 2 Cups
  6. Cardamom Powder- 1tsp
  7. Cumin Powder- 1tsp
  8. Sliced Coconut Pieces- 2 tbsp
  9. Cashews- few
  1. Melt the jaggery with little water over low heat and strain the impurities when it becomes cool. Meanwhile roast the cardamom powder and cumin powder and keep this aside.
  2. Take the first and second milk from the coconut using little water and keep it aside.
  3. Heat a vessel, add ghee and fry the rice flakes till the raw smell disappears.
