Very tasty, easy to make dessert item using sago(Chavvari) and Ripe Bananas. I tasted it first from one of my Malabar friends.

  2. Sago : 1/4 Cup
  3. Sugar : 3-4 tbsp
  4. Condensed Milk : 2-3 tsp
  5. Milk : 2 Cup
  6. Nuts & Raisins  : Few
  7. Ghee : 1 tsp
  8. Cardamom Powder : a pinch

Method :

  • Soak sago pearls in water for 10 minutes 
  • Peel banana and cut into small cubes
  • Boil Milk in a pan.
  • When it starts boiling, add condensed milk, sugar and sago pearls(washed and drained well).
  • Stir well until sago pearls are cooked well and change into a moderately thick consistency.
  • Add banana cubes and change the flame to low
  • Stir for some time(Do not over cook the banana)
  • Heat ghee in a pan and fry the raisins and nuts.
  • Pour them into the payasam..
