Javvarisi Payasam is a popular sweet prepared during festival. Sabudana kheer cooked in milk and condensed milk gives a delicious flavor to the tapioca. Its great make ahead desserts for party .
For festivals and some happy occasion we usually make some sweets to celebrate. Among all the sweets Payasam variety is common in our house. As it doesn’t involve much time and can be prepared soon. I personally prefers payasam as it feels good to have it in a bowl and taste it with spoon, enjoying the flavors.
I tasted Javvarisi payasam in my friends place recently and realized its been a while since I prepared it in home. I wanted to try it on weekend and made. It was a total disaster. My sago was sticky and payasam was great because of the javvarisi texture. My husband asked me did you have a glue for my mouth, well it was a good joke but I was upset with the Kheer so I didn’t react 😛
I didnt know what was the mistake. I called my mother and she told me what I did wrong while making Javvarisi Payasam. I forgot to strain the white layer and that was the problem with the texture. I wanted to try it again and made it for Ganesh Chaturthi new year.
While having lunch my Husband asked what payasam today, I said Sago Kheer. He said I am glad your are doing experiment for TMF but not on festive days. I gave him payasam with great hesitation he took a spoon. After tasting it he said well you can post this if you have one more bowl for me:D
Interesting thing is Vishvak comment for Javvarisi Payasam. I gave payasam to him after seeing it he told “White ball’:-) Kids associate everything they see with the things they like. I always associate it with pearls for him its white ball payasam.
