Delicious and easy dessert with 35 minutes made with just 5 ingredients rava pal payasam.
Last week was not good for me as I have to take out my wisdom tooth which was bothering me for some time. So Friday that event happened, I was in pain but survived with antibiotics and pain killers. Yes it is horrible pain; on the top of it my hubby was also sick with cough and fever. Now I am feeling better. I made this rava pal payasam a week ago but was only able to blog about it now.
I never thought of making rava payasam until I saw a YouTube video from Pazhayidom Mohanan Namboothiri. Yes I am a fan of him. Love the way he gives out proportion of recipes in the cookery shows. Most of the people will keep it as secret but he gives exact amount so that you can’t make any mistake. My mom used to make rava kanji yes porridge with semonlina/rava with touch of sugar. But she did not think about payasam or pudding with it.
I have tried traditional recipe of sheera with semolina which is delicious, so I had to try rava kesari at least once. Once I tried but did not come good. Maybe next time I will succeed. I always thought that semolina pudding is used only in India, but when I read more into it, came to know that Dutch make traditional pudding with semolina with berry sauce (Griesmeelpudding met bessensap). This is thicker version similar to custard where as rava pal payasm/semolina pudding Indian style is liquid one? I need to try that too.
Then there is Greek Halwa recipe made with semolina, which I need to try too. Yes lot of recipes to do in the list. Gradually I will make them. For the time being here is the recipe of rava pal payasam/Semolina milk pudding.
Beauty of this dish is you only need some semolina, sugar, milk, ghee and raisins and cashews. Yes with 5 ingredients you can make this delicious pudding. Yes semolina/rava is cooked in milk and then sugar is added and finally garnished with raisins and cashew nuts.
