Aval payasam / Poha Kheer/ Flattened Rice Payasam

Aval payasam or poha kheer is delectable traditional and super easy to make kheer variety made with flattened rice or beaten rice flakes, milk and sugar. This payasam can be made with red or white poha. Here I have used thick white poha. Furthermore you can replace sugar with jaggery. Aval payasam is traditionally made as naivedyam during festivals like Krishna Jayanthi. Check out the recipe for flattened rice payasam below.


Flattened rice -1/2 cup heaped 

Milk -1 1/2 -2 cups 

Sugar-1/2-3/4 cup 

Cardamom powder-1/4 tsp 



Saffron strings-few 

Ghee-1-2 Tbsps 

Recipe Video


👉Wash the flattened rice well and drain water completely and set aside for 10 mins (this makes the poha to absorb water and fluff up a bit and makes it easy to cook).

👉Heat ghee in a kadai fry the cashews and raisins until cashews turn golden brown colour and raisins puff up and set aside.

👉In the same kadai add milk and allow it to reduce for sometime.

👉Add cardamom powder.

👉Once the milk thickens a bit add the poha and cook for 5 mins until the aval becomes soft.

👉Once the poha is cooked and milk thickens add the sugar and mix well boil for 5 mins or until desired consistency.

👉Add saffron strings.

👉Finally add the fried cashews and raisins.

👉Remove from heat in slightly watery consistency as payasam tends to thicken over time.

👉Serve hot.


✍️You can roast the poha ligthly in ghee until aromatic and then add milk to it instead of washing and drying.

✍️If you are using jaggery first dissolve it in water strain it and then use.

Preparation time-20 mins
