Today is a special,birthday for one of my friend and a well know blogger in blogosphere,Yes its Priya Ranjit of Cook Like Priya.
To celebrate her birthday we group of bloggers decided to treat her with pink colored dishes as she loves pink a lot.So I decided to make a simple sago aka javvarissi payasam flavored with the Rooh Afza (rose flavored syrup).The end result was an awesome and flavorful payasam.More than me,my lil one who is 17 months enjoyed this payasam a lot.Lets move on to the recipe.......................
Preparation Time ~ 5 minutes
Soaking Time ~15-20 minutes
Cooking Time ~25 minutes
|Sweetned condensed milk||1/2 cup|
|2% milk||2 -21/2 cups|
|Rooh Afza rose syrup||2 tbs|
|Pistachios/almonds(finely chopped)||for garnishing(optional)|
Rinse the sago in water for couple of times ad soak it in the water for 15-20 minutes.Fry the cashews in ghee and keep it aside.
Boil the milk in a heavy bottom pan and let it simmer for 5 minutes.Now add the soaked sago and cook it till the sago cooked completely.Stir it in between.
Now add the condensed milk and mix it completely till it blends well,cook it for one boil.
Add the fried cashews and rose syrup,mix it well.Put off the flame.
Serve it warm or chilled.
- Here I used the sweetened condensed milk,so I didn't add sugar and it was just perfect.If needed it can be increased.
- I didn't add cardamom powder as the rose flavor is enough and makes the payasam so perfect and flavorful.
- If you are not adding condensed milk then add around 1/2 -3/4 cups of sugar according to taste.
