Aval payasam recipe with jaggery

Aval payasam with jaggery | Poha kheer with jaggery | Jaggery based payasam. Aval payasam recipe in Tamil, with full video and step by step pictures.

We usually make aval payasam for festivals like Gokulashtami | Janmashtami. Also, we make for any special fridays like Thai velli and aadi velli. Aval payasam is a very simple payasam and can be made quickly for any festival. Generally payasam is made with sugar. But for festival neivedyams we make it using jaggery.

For most of the milk based kheers it is a common question, why the payasam gets curdled when we add jaggery to it. The reason being, when the jaggery syrup is added to hot milk, there are high chances of the payasam getting curdled.

We can make this aval payasam with sugar or using condensed milk. Check out the notes section for more tips.

Notes
