Wheat Semolina Kheer | Godhumai Rava Payasam | Wheat Payasam with Jaggery & Coconut



Being a South Indian how can I not love payasam? Over the weekend I tried this delicious wheat rava payasam with jaggery and coconut and everyone at home simply loved this combination. I could not stop myself from clicking some pictures. I was waiting to use this silver tray and tumblers for one of the recipes and so I quickly unpacked it, plated and clicked ;-) how cute does this look, I must thank our dear friend who gifted us this silver wear for our wedding. Those tumbles are so tiny only a one year old can drink from them but I still adore this and kept it really well packed.

Wheart rava or cream of wheat is a fine textured grains that looks similar to white sooji or semolina, this is quite different from broken wheat which is more like rice grains. Sooji by nature gives thickness and puff up a bit while cooking, the payasam has a thick texture because of the wheat rava. Wheat rava is tasteless, a perfect diabetic ingedient and is can absorb flavour from the milk and other ingredients, give it a try and I am sure you will love it. For a diabetic version simply skip sugar and serve as it is :-)

Cooks Wisdom

-Adjust the sugar and jaggery as per your sweet tooth.
- You can add more milk and make it as a kheer
- Do not add more than the mentioned amount of wheat rava else it will become a pudding and not a payasam.
