Today’s recipe is a guest post I made for Vidhya from Vidhyashomecooking .Vidhya and I became friends through WP and that too very recently. She is such a talented blogger, an active working woman who is managing both her family and her workplace so happily. I called her for the first time for I had some questions regarding blog migration. She was the one who clearly explained with both positive and negative issues that might happen after the migration. Also she referred me to her friend, who successfully completed the blog migration. I really can’t thank her enough for the help she did for me. I’m really so happy to post a recipe on her space where one could find so many healthy and delicious recipes. All the very best my dear friend and Happy Blogging!
BROKEN WHEAT KHEER / GODHUMAI PAYASAM
Broken wheat payasam or Godhumai payasam is a healthy payasam prepared using broken wheat and jaggery.One could make so many healthy sweet recipes using jaggery as a sweetening agent.In kerala people use jaggery for almost all payasam recipes but here in Tamilnadu we use more of white sugar.I have also added some ghee roasted nuts and raisins.If you prefer making a healthy version then just omit the ghee and add the grated coconut at the last step.The healthy version would be so perfect for dieters and diabetics.This payasam recipe requires more water for it becomes so thick on cooling.Also make sure to add the jaggery syrup only after the broken wheat is completely cooked .It is also a popular recipe in Kerala Sadya.Do make this healthy payasam and indulge without any guilt 🙂
