This payasam is so easy, and also tasty beyond words. The soft balls, immersed in the payasam, which consists of jaggery and coconut, is so delicious. Please try this recipe and give me feed back.

Kozhukkattai flour - 1/4 cup
Water as required
A pinch of gingely oil
Fresh grated coconut - 2 tbsps, ground finely
Jaggery - 1/4 cup, heaped
Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
Boiled milk - 1 cup

Recipe Cuisine: South Indian; Category: Festival
Prep time: 15 mts; Cooking time: 20 mts

Serves 4

Bring the water to boiling point

                                     Add little by little to the flour and keep stirring

Then knead well, with greased palms, and make small balls

Keep water, enough to immerse the balls, and drop them gently inside.

Grind the coconut and keep it ready

Pour hot water over jaggery, mash it well, strain nicely to check impurities

      By now, the balls are cooked. They will look shiny and also will start floating on top

Now, keeping the flames on low, add the ground coconut, stir well for 5 minutes and afterwards, add the cleaned jaggery syrup too.

Now, add cardamom powder, and 1 cup boiled milk too. Don't pour refrigerated milk, it might curdle. Now also, take care to keep the flames on low, stir constantly and see to it that it does not curdle and switch off once everything is mixed well.

The yum yum Payasam is ready.
