Javvarisi Semiya Payasam
Semiya Payasam is my favorite but only next to Sago Payasam. Nowadays mittu is fond of sago payasam she calls it balls payasam :) Lately I am having a great liking towards payasam made with jaggery than sugar so wanted to try this combo of Javvarisi Semiya Payasam with jaggery.I made this payasam long back and it was sitting in my drafts waiting to get attention, as its Aadi 18 today thought to post this easy payasam.

My Notes:

  • Soaking sago helps in easy and fast cooking.But if you are using the nylon variety sago no need to soak.
  • The quantity of sago and vermicelli depends on your liking.
  • When milk is added to hot jaggery syrup there are chances for curdling so I make sure to cool down a bit then add it.Else you can keep the flame in low then add milk.
  • I used full cream milk so did'nt reduce it further.If you feel your milk is little runny then let it simmer to make it thick and creamy.

  1. Looks yummy....

    My eyes r on ur golden color vessel. From where did u get it

    Can we cook semiya n sago together?

    1. I got it from a near by shop....Both takes different time to cook so I cooked them separately...You can try cooking them together

  2. Excellent!!! Your recipes are really good. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Hi Sharmi, such an awesome receipt. I tried this today and it came out really fantastic. off late I was just thinking about some sweet receipe with jaggery and this is my destiny..

    It tasted awesome, i used heavy whipping cream instead milk. As i had some left and wanted to use it. Whipping cream gave creamy texture, similar to milk maid mix.
