Godhuma Rava Payasam | Samba Rava payasam recipe

Godhumai rava payasam is a simple and easy payasam made with samba wheat rava, milk and jaggery as the main ingredients. I tried this last week itself but somehow struck with editing the video and by the time i finished editing it was too late . So i decided to post the recipe of Samba rava payasam today. Generally we use dalia | samba rava | godhuma rava for making upma or porridge . But this is a creamy and delicious payasam with godhuma rava . As i have mentioned in one of my recent posts, i am taking skype class for a group of 30 people, who are learning sanskrit and vedas (from a different teacher). As a part of their class, traditional cooking is being taught. I am previlaged to share my cooking knowledge with them by showing them how to cook traditional recipes. For the first class i made this godhuma rava payasam and a variety rice recipe(coming up soon). Check out my other easy payasam recipes:

Samba godhumai payasam

  1. You can add 1 tblsp of yellow moong dal or channa dal to the godhumai rava while roasting, this brings more creamier texture to the payasam.
  2. Add the milk in the last once the payasam is cool. Else it will curdle. Add warm or cold milk. Do not add hot milk.
  3. Instead of milk you can add thick coconut milk in the last.
  4. I used the fine variety of samba rava for this payasam.
  5. You can cook the samba wheat in water also instead of milk but cooking in milk only gives creamy texture.
  6. You can increase the sweetness by adding 3/4 cup of jaggery.
