Poppy seeds kheer | Gasagase payasam | Khus khus kheer – Jaggery-based payasam made using poppy seeds and coconut. Gasagase payasam recipe with full video and step-by-step pictures.

I have heard about this payasam but never tried or tasted it anywhere. After I started Jeyashris kitchen I came to know about this Popular Karnataka special Gasagase payasam. But being lived in Singapore I have never exposed to Poppy seeds | khasa khasa in the market. It is banned in the Singapore market. After moving to Hongkong I was surprised to see poppy seeds in the market.

I made Thandai for Holi using khus khus. I wanted to try out Poppy seeds kheer. As Ugadi and Tamil New year is approaching, I thought I will post this jaggery-based khus khus payasam. We can make this for Navaratri, Tamil new year or for any pooja at home.

Apart from making kheers, poppy seeds are used in Kurma too. Check out other popular jaggery based payasam recipes from Jeyashri’s kitchen
