Preparing Jaggery water

To make this aadi paal, lets first prepare the jaggery. In a saucepan, add jaggery with little water.

Let the jaggery completely melt and start to boil. Put off and strain it into the vessel in which you are going to make payasam/dessert.

Making the payasam

To the clean jaggery water, add thin coconut milk or the second extract. Stir continuously and let the mixture come to a boil.

Lastly, add cardamom powder and thick coconut milk. Put off the flame. Since we are making in an earthen pot, the heat in itself is sufficient for the first coconut milk to get heated up.


Melt ghee and fry the cashews until slightly roasted.

Add the roasted cashews to the payasam and mix once.
