Wheat Flour Payasa

Wheat Flour Kheer
Wheat Flour Payasa

Here’s a small twist on a familiar dish. Wheat kheer is a typical ethnic dish among indians. I have tried a variation in this using wheat flour instead of whole wheat and it turned out very good. I call it wheat flour payasa or wheat flour kheer. Its a delicious and sumptuous dessert with lot of cashews and raisins and also very easy to make.

Let’s enter the kitchen-:)

Ingredients :

  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup cashew nuts or almonds
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 12 oz coconut milk (1 tin)
  • 1/2 cup milk (optional)
  • Jaggery  for sweet (1/2 cup)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp of clarified butter (ghee)
  • 1 to 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cardamom powder

  • Mix the fried wheat flour  in a bowl with 1/2 cup water . Stir it nicely to remove the lumps, add more water if required.
  • In a separate vessel, boil the milk and about 1 cup  water.
  • Add the wheat flour paste to the boiling milk. Stir well until it boils.
  • Add Jaggery, coconut milk and pinch of salt.
  • You can change the consistency by adding water. (Note: if you add more water, add appropriate amount of Jaggery to sweeten it)
  • In a separate frying pan, roast cashew nuts and raisins separately with about 1 tbsp of ghee.
  • Add the cashews and raisins to the main dish when it begins to boil.
  • Add cardamom powder for flavor.
