Ravai/rava/semolina is something which is commonly used almost everyday in sweets and savouries. Sheera/kesari is one sweet made in jiffy. But I had never tried making payasam with rava. It was my dad’s birthday beginning of this month and I was wondering what to make. I did not feel like baking that day and dad loves Indian sweets most of the times. So then I made this one. It tasted great and is very easy and quick to make. You can make these delicious dessert when you have guests for dinner.
Boil the milk.Roast the semolina in ghee for around 5 minutes. Add sugar and mix well. Then add the milk and stir till it thicken and the mixture is a uniform liquid. Roast the cashews in ghee and add it to the payasam. Garnish with saffron. Chill and serve.
