Payasam is an important party. South-Indian meal. Every festive meal in South India usually consists of poriyal, kootu, Avial, Pachadi with a three-course meal of Sambar, rasam, vathal kulambu and thayir . This is usually ended with a tasty payasam. Payasam is usually made with rice, millets, dals, sago, veermicelli, and fruits in a jaggery or sugar base. The jaggery-based Payasam is finished off with coconut milk. Today I made a jaggery-based payasam with wheat Rava/ Broken Wheat. Broken Wheat is usually used to make upma and sometimes for dosa. Wheat rava Payasam is very tasty and can be made in less time. Here I have used my pressure cooker to make this payasam. You can make it in an open pot or in an electric pressure cooker. It tasted very yummy and creamy.
