SAGO PAYASAM | JAVVARISI PAYASAM

SAGO PAYASAM RECIPE


Sago Payasam -  Be it a wedding or any festive occasions,sweets or desserts are inevitable in Indian cuisine.Today I am going to share a simple, rich and delicious payasam prepared with Sago also known as Sabudana  and Javvarisi in Tamil. These are small and white balls ,when soaked and cooked, becomes larger, soft and translucent. 

Sago payasam is a very sweet and rich dessert. This delicious payasam is prepared with sago,milk and sugar as the main ingredient.For enriched taste and to enhance the flavor saffron and cardamom are used.This payasam is very easy to prepare and makes a great dessert after any meal. There are so many methods of making this payasam and here comes mine. 

Serves : 4
Preparation time : 10 minutes
Cooking time : 30 - 45 minutes
.
 Ingredients for Sago Payasam
  • 3/4 cup of sago | javvarisi - small sized
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 4 cups of milk
  • A pinch of saffron
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of ghee
  • 1 teaspoon of cardamom powder
  • 10 - 12 cashewnuts


Preparation

Heat 1/2 teaspoon of ghee in a pan, add sago and fry for 2 minutes. 

Boil 4 cups of water and when it starts boiling ,add the sago,reduce the flame and allow it to cook until it turns transparent.Keep stirring occasionally to prevent sticking along the sides and bottom. 

When the sago turns translucent, remove from heat and keep it aside. Let it stand for 10 minutes.

Drain the sago through a sieve and rinse it with cold water to remove the excess starch from it.  Keep it aside

Boil milk in a thick bottomed pan, meanwhile soak the saffron in 2 tablespoons of warm milk and keep it aside.

when the milk gets reduced to say 3 cups, tip in the sugar and stir it under a low flame,until it dissolves.

Add the sago, along with the saffron milk and cardamom powder. Stir them gently and allow to cook for about 5 - 10 minutes . 

Meanwhile, heat the remaining ghee and fry the cashewnuts until golden brown for garnishing.

When the payasam is ready, remove from flame and add the fried cashew nuts.

Delicious sago payasam is ready to be served.


                          

Serve this delicious sago payasam or javvarisi payasam  warm or chilled :)
