Wheat Payasam - Vinayaka Chavithi special

This Payasam is special! This is not the modern-age payasam but an age-old recipe from my mom's kitty, probably passed onto her as a part of legacy :-) and she passed it onto me :-) I totally love this payasam for its simplicity and superb taste. Would have it everyday provided someone is willing to cook it for me..Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do!!

Wheat flour - 1 cup
Water - 2 cups
Jaggery - 1 cup
Fresh coconut pieces - 2 tbsps
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tbsp
Ghee - 1 tbsp
2 tbsps wheat flour


  • In a bowl, add wheat flour and enough water and mix it into a chapati like dough
  • With the dough, make small semiya like pieces and dry them in shade for couple of hours
  • In a pan, add ghee and when it is hot, add the semiya and fry for just 2 min
  • In another pan, add 2 cups of water and when it starts boiling add the above fried semiya and cook till the pieces are soft.
  • In a small cup, add 2 tbsp wheat flour and enough water and make it into a watery batter. Add this batter to the boiling mixture and stir well and reduce the heat and let it boil for 2 min
  • Add jaggery, cardamom powder and coconut pieces to the semiya mixture and stir well and cook for 5 minutes and switch off the heat.
Have it hot or have it cold but you cannot deny the enjoyment it gives you! :)
