Gothumai Payasam / Gothumai Pradhaman/ Broken Wheat payasam

For the day of Blogging Marathon#47 under the theme Indian desserts I am sharing a creamy payasam made with broken wheat rava.
This recipe I noted down from Chef Venkatesh Bhat and wanted to give it a try.He cooked the broken wheat(wheat rava) in a pressure cooker and made this payasam.But I fried the broken wheat in a tsp of ghee and cooked it in the pressure cooker.
Cooking it in the pressure cooker saves the time and broken wheat cooks perfectly.The flavor of coconut milk and the cardamom powder makes this payasm so rich and delicious.
I made it slightly in a thicker side if you want you can make it a slight thinner version.
As my jaggery was not dark I didn't get a dark brown color but the taste was awesome.Off to the recipe.......................
