Course: Dessert
Cuisine: Kerala
Servings: 3 -4
Author: Maria Jose

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Quick cooking Oats
  • 200-225 gms Jaggery
  • 2 - 2.5 cups Medium thick coconut milk
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup Thick coconut milk
  • 2 Crushed cardamom
  • 1.5 tbsp Cashew nuts
  • 1/3 cup Coconut bits (thengakothu)
  • 1 tbsp Ghee

Instructions

  • Add 1/3 cup water to the jaggery and melt it. Strain the melted jaggery. Add oats to the strained jaggery. Cook till the jaggery is dried up. Add medium thick coconut milk, bring it to a boil. When it starts to thicken, add crushed cardamom and thick coconut milk. Stir well. Cook on low flame for 5 mins.
  • Heat ghee in a pan and fry the cashews and coconut bits, till it turns golden brown. Add this to the payasam and serve hot.

Notes

Usually I dont add cardamom, cashew, ghee and coconut bits. Also, I use only medium thick coconut milk. I use maggie coconut milk powder to make this. You can adjust the qty of coconut milk to suit your requirements. Please keep in mind that it thickens as it rests, so adjust the consistency accordingly. If you are making it for kids, you can increase the qty of ghee.

  1. My first preparation using Marias menu recipe that flopped :( planned this as dessert for diwali lunch with a few friends.. had to make semiya payasam in the end :(
    My oats payasam had a very stringy consistency and smell of oats was overpowering.. I used Quaker oats and followed the recipe exactly.. not sure what I missed.
    On a different note, I have tried numerous other recipes from your blog and they were all super hits! :)
    Do post a lasagna recipe as well..
    Thank you for your simple and easy recipes!

  7. Hi.. this looks yummy and easy to make (just what was ordered for me;) ).. thanks for the recipe.. but one question.. can coconut milk be substituted with any thing else? (to make a healthy version ;) )

    • Thanks Seena chechy :) You can use low fat milk instead of coconut milk for a healthier version. Also you can make it with thin coconut milk instead of the thick one.

      Hope you get to try this and like it too :)

      Cheers

  9. I want to see the six pack on Sony first!

    Oats is my breakfast for the past three years. Oats mixed with dry fruits and cooked in boiled water is how I eat it (no milk is added). As per Mayo Clinic experts, oats is one of the top five food which will lower the cholesterol….. read this…. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/cholesterol/CL00002
    But of course not when cooked with thick coconut milk and ghee!
