Javvarisi Semiya Paal Payasam | Sago Vermicelli Kheer | South Indian Payasam Recipe

Javvarisi Semiya Paal Payasam
Javvarisi Semiya Paal Payasam
Javvarisi Semiya Paal Payasam (Sago Vermicelli Milk Pudding/ Kheer). A real South Indian cannot live without payasam for a sweet occasion or rather any feast. Mastering a payasam does not take great efforts but practice. I learnt it the hard way. During my initial culinary adventures I used to get ready made packs of payasam mix, read the ingredient list and understood what goes into a payasam. But little did I know then the real procedure / cooking method which was the key to a great payasam. Nevertheless now I absolutely got the hang of it. Paysam is so versatile and easy to make, the best part is it can be made quickly with ingredients in any Indian pantry. Although I must confess that I love relishing a chilled paaysam than the warm counterpart. Usually payasam is made with vermicelli/ semiya or javvarisi/ sago but today I have combined both ingredients to make this delicious payasam.

COOKS WISDOM

TIP 1

1. Its better to boil semiya and sago separately as they both get cooked in a different time, roasting them in ghee helps them to not stick and clump together.

TIP 2

2. Get small variety of sago to so instant payasam, if you are using big variety it might need soaking time of 1-2 hrs. Also if you are soaking in water skip the roasting in ghee step.

TIP 3

3. You can add saffron strands / use jaggery to make the same payasam its upto your preference.
