Avalakki Payasa Recipe with step by step photos :

Firstly, heat about 2-3 tsp of ghee in a pan. Once heated, add some cashew and roast for a minute or so.Once the cashews have turned golden in colour, add few raisins and fry . Once they are well roasted , keep the dry fruits aside .

Now to the same pan, {after removing the dry fruits}, add 1 cup of thick poha .

Roast them well in ghee for about 3-4 minutes.When the poha turns crisp and changes colour, keep aside.

Next to the pan , add 3/4 cup of jaggery. Now add about 1/4 cup water {until the jaggery is submerged} , mix and let the jaggery melt. Once it melts , keep aside . We needn’t make any syrup or thick consistency .

Next, to a pan, add about 1/2 a litre of milk .Add 1/2 cup water. Mix. Once they are mixed, on medium flame let the milk come to a boil.

Once the milk has come to a boil, add the pre roasted poha and mix well . Let the poha cook well in milk for about 4-5 mins.Keep stirring in intervals , so that milk doesn’t burn.

After about 3-4 minutes, check once . The poha might be cooked. When we press the poha, it should have softened .

Now to the kheer, add about a pinch of salt . Addition of salt will enhance the taste of kheer . Also add , saffron soaked in milk . I have soaked a pinch of Saffron in about 3-4 tbsp hot milk .

Add 1 tsp cardamom powder , roasted nuts to the kheer and mix .

Switch off . Sieve and add jaggery syrup . Please do add the jaggery solution only after switching off the flame else sometimes there are chances that milk might spoil .

Mix the kheer well . At this point, you may feel that consistency of Kheer is thin / liquidy . But, in sometime the poha will absorb and the consistency will be all right. Cover the kheer and allow to sit for about 5 minutes .The poha will absorb all the flavours and kheer will become more tasty and creamier .

Poha kheer is ready to serve . Garnish with dry fruits . You could either serve them hot / warm / cold .

Points to Note

  • Do not use thin variety of poha to make this Dish . Thick poha works best . You can use thick red poha too .
  • Instead of jaggery, you could also use sugar but it will taste better with jaggery.
  • Add jaggery only after switching off the flame . Sometimes when we add jaggery to hot boiling milk, there are chances that the milk might curdle / spoil.
  • Instead of milk , you can use coconut milk . Cook poha in thin coconut milk , and add thick coconut milk towards the end along with jaggery syrup.
  • If you want to quicken the process, you could also use pre boiled milk for this recipe.
  • Addition of Saffron is optional , but if you have , do add . Enhances taste and flavor.
  • if you want to make this kheer more creamy , you can add few spoons of milk maid / grind few cashews and add / add thick . I don’t add any of them usually.
