javvarisi payasam recipe with step by step pics. javvarisi payasam is the south indian version of sabudana kheer. this sweet creamy delicious dessert is also called as saggubiyyam payasam or sago payasam.

sabudana payasam recipe, javvarisi payasam

i make javvarisi payasam similar to the way i prepare poha payasam with a few differences. in this recipe you don’t need to soak sabudana, but do note that cooking sabudana without soaking takes more time than if they were soaked and cooked later.

this method best comes handy and is useful when you want to make sabudana payasam any time or have forgotten to soak the sabudana before. sabudana payasam can be made two ways – one is by soaking sabudana and the other is by roasting sabudana and then cooking it. i usually choose the second method which is also how the sago payasam is made in this recipe.

sabudana is one of those ingredients that is also used during fasting like ekadashi or navratri. so a few more sabudana recipes you can make are:

  1. sabudana khichdi
  2. sabudana vada
  3. sabudana tikki

since i served javvarisi payasam as naivedyam to lord ganesha, i did add edible camphor, but this can be skipped. sabudana payasam can be served as a sweet dessert after meals.
