Arisi thengai payasam, jaggery-based kheer made using raw rice and coconut without the addition of milk. Arisi thengai payasam recipe with full video and step-by-step pictures.

This payasam is a very common one in most of the Brahmin houses. We make this for most of the festivals. Especially after Varalakshmi nombu, we make this arisi thengai payasam using the coconut we kept in the kalasam. We use the kalasam rice also, not fully, for making this arisi thengai payasam.

For Karthigai Deepam we make Pori urundaiNei appam and along with this, my mom makes this Arisi thengai payasam too. At my mil’s place we mostly make paruppu payasam. This payasam is a vegan recipe as we don’t add milk in this recipe. You can make it fully vegan by skipping the ghee roasted cashew nuts.
