Appi payasa/puri payasa
Written by Jayashree
Published on March 22, 2016

Appi payasa is one of the popular sweets  prepared in Karnataka. It is simply divine. Thin puris of semolina are made, broken and boiled in milk with sugar and garnished with dry fruits.

With Holi round the corner, one can make this easy sweet. It is not only delicious, I am sure you will be making it over again and again. The other recipe for Holi, which I had posted a couple of days is here.  A few other sweet recipes can be viewed here.

May the season of festivity bring immense peace and happiness. 

Let me take you to the recipe now. Pictorial presentation is below.

  4. Heat oil in a kadai.
  5. Deep fry the puri to golden colour.
  6. Remove it on a tissue paper.
  7. Repeat the procedure for the rest of the dough. You will be making around seven to eight puris.
  8. Crush the puris to small pieces.
  9. Add them to the boiled milk.
  10. Boil the milk on a low flame for sometime.
  11. Add sugar and mix well.Boil for a few more minutes. Let the consistency be not too thick. On cooling, it becomes thicker. Remove from flame.
  12. Add cardamom powder.

Notes
Unlike kheer, there is no need to boil the milk till it is reduced to half the quantity. On adding the puri pieces and boiling gives thick consistency to it.
