Parippu Payasam
Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert
 
Ingredients
  • Cherupayar Parippu – 200gm
  • Jaggery -400gm
  • Thick coconut milk – 1½ cups
  • Medium thick coconut milk – 4 cups
  • Light coconut milk – 4 cups
  • Ghee – 3 tablespoon
  • Cashewnut & Coconut pieces – 50 gm each
Instructions
  1. Fry the parippu without oil for 5-6 minutes. Wash it well & cook with boiled water. Melt the jaggery by adding 1 cup water. Add the melted jaggery to well cooked parippu & stir well. Add 2 tablespoon ghee to this & mix well. Add light coconut milk & when it starts boiling add medium thick coconut milk. When this mix evaporates and becomes half add the thick coconut milk. Stir well for 5 minutes & remove from gas.
  2. Fry the cashewnuts & coconut pieces in rest of the ghee & add to payasam. Serve hot.
Notes
The payasam keeps well in the fridge for 2-3 days. Microwave for 1 min, before serving. I used Maggie coconut milk powder to make this payasam. For thick coconut milk use 3-4 tbsp milk powder in 1 cup lukewarm water, for medium thick, use 2-3 tbsp milk powder in 1 cup lukewarm water, for thin, use 1-2 tbsp milk powder in 1 cup lukewarm water.

    hi maria,
    can u tell me how can i make these 3 types of milk from coconut milk powder…

    • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

      Hi SVS

      Thanks for dropping by.

      To make thin/light coconut milk, add 1 tbsp of coconut milk powder to 1 cup of warm water. To make medium thick coconut milk powder add 2tbsp of coconut milk powder and for thick coconut milk powder add 3 tbsp of coconut milk powder to 1 cup of warm water.

      This is the standard measurement. You can make some adjustments as per your requirement.

  • sherine

    hi maria, we love this payasam .
    wanted to know if we can make this using canned coconut milk?

    • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

      Hi Sherine

      You can make this payasam with canned coconut milk too. To get diff consistencies add water accordingly.

      I’ve given the steps for making coconut milk of diff consistency using coconut milk powder as a comment to this post. Please refer that if you’re planning to use coconut milk powder.

      Hope you’ll like the payasam.

      Cheers

  • Mrs. Maya Mariam Matthews

    I’ve noticed that you haven’t added chukk, jeerakam & elakka (dried ginger, cumin & cardamom) powder in this payasam….
    Wouldn’t it taste great with it?

    • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

      Hi Maya

      Thanks for dropping in here and also for your suggestion.

      Regarding adding chukku and jeerakam, we both (my husband and myself) dont like it in payasam, thats why I didnt add it here.

      However we like the cardamom flavor and I usually add it too. I forgot to mention it in the above recipe, thanks again for pointing it out :)

      Cheers

  • ALias Polson

    i tried the recipe..it was awesome…..Thank uu so muchhhhhhhhhh

  • Mercyjeevan

    Hi Maria,

     I tried your recipe for this Onam .  I followed the exact recipe.It was good. But it was too sweet. 400 grams of Jaggery was a bit too much . Next time i will modify the amount of Jaggery.

    Mercy

    • http://mariasmenu.com Maria Jose

      Hi Mercy,

      Thank you! The sweetness of the jaggery very much depends on the colour of it. Its better to do a taste test first to check the sweetness & adjust the qty accordingly.

      Hope you get it perfect next time :)

      Cheers

  • Vipin

    Hi maria,
    Now this is some dish i can authentically comment on. Backed with my experience helping at weddings back in my village at ottapalam. The mantra is keep strirring. Stir from the word go to ten minutes after you take the uruli from the stove. If not you will find the parippu settled at the bottom. And do your entire cooking at not higher than scale 2 if you are using a gas stove

    • http://mariasmenu.com Maria Jose

      Hi Vipin,

      Belated Onam wishes! So you used to help at wedding feast, eh? Nice!!

      Thanks for sharing your tips here, appreciate it :)

      Cheers

    Ms. Maria,

    I was trying my hands on Parippu payasam today. I started making it, and realized i don’t have coconut or coconut milk in the pantry. So I substituted it (coconut milk) with Evaporated milk “brings back old memories for this middle eastern kid”. It turned out okay. The consistence was good, but it was too sweet (which was expected).

    **Moral of story..our coconut milk and coconuts will always be the best for payasams :D .

    Thank you so much for taking your time, to respond to comments..and posting recipes. It shows the dedication you have for cooking, and making this blog reach the hearts of malayalees(and others) who are craving for some nadan recipes.

    • http://mariasmenu.com Maria Jose

      Hi Anna,

      Thank you so much dear for your wonderful comment :)

      As you said coconut milk complements jaggery very well, there is no substitute for that :)

      Cheers
      Maria
