Aval/Rice flakes Payasam(Microwave Method)

For the day 2 of blogging marathon#17 I made this simple aval payasam in microwave oven and it came out super delicious.
This is a easy to make payasam which hardly takes 10-15 minutes and I make it mostly on Fridays for prasadham.
My mom makes this payasam little different using sugar and regular milk but here I used the jaggery and coconut milk.Now to the recipe................


Rice flakes/aval1cup
Powdered Jaggery/vellam1/2-3/4cup
Coconut milk/thengai paal2cups
Cashews(finely chopped)2tbs
Cardamom powder/ellakai podi1/2tsp
Coconut pieces(finely chopped)2tbs
Edible camphor/pacchakarpoorama small rice grain size


                              In a microwave safe bowl take the powdered jaggery and add 1/2cup of water, keep it in the microwave for 3-4 minutes or till it becomes a thick syrup.Fry the cashews and coconut pieces separately in a tsp of ghee,keep aside.
In an another big wide bowl heat the remaining ghee and fry the rice flakes till it becomes golden color,now sprinkle 2tsp of water and cook it in the microwave for a minute.
Add the melted jaggery  to the cooked rice flakes through a strainer and cook for 3-4 minutes.Now add the coconut milk and keep it for a minute.
Then add the cardamom powder,fried cashews and coconut pieces.Finally add the edible camphor and mix it well.
Aval payasam is ready.


  • I used the thin variety,so cooked it for a minute,if it is a thick variety add some more water and cook it for 3-4 minutes.
  • Payasam gets thicker on cooling,if it it too thick add 1/2cup of boiled regular milk to get the consistency.
  • After adding the coconut milk do not cook for more than a minute or two,otherwise it may curdle.
  • The given measurement easily serves for 6-8 people but I halved the quantity and made.
