Broken Wheat Fruit Payasam | Super-Delicious with Natural Fruity Flavour

Payasam is the most popular milk-based Indian dessert which could commonly be seen at homes during festival seasons. The most usual payasam includes some that are done with rice, sago, vermicelli and moong dal.

Broken wheat is known for its high fibre content and yes, they are rich in iron and vitamin D as well. Broken Wheat, when combined with fruits and milk, would be mouth-watering and for sure, this delicious combination would make you go crave for this payasam always.

This recipe is originally posted on December 3, 2019, which is almost a year back. I posted this recipe without video and now, updating the recipe again with the visual treat and more pictures.
Wanna know how this Broken Wheat Fruit Payasam is discovered? 
It was one fine day, I prepared Broken Wheat Payasam. And when I tried my 2-years old cutie to feed an apple, she refused. A sudden flash in my mind made me grate the whole apple into the payasam which had turned the delicious Broken wheat Payasam into a super delicious Broken Wheat payasam with a unique flavour which my kiddo finished off in no time. Thereafter, Broken wheat Payasam becomes Broken Wheat Fruit Payasam with the addition of fleshy fruits & dry fruits, and it has been added to our 'WOW recipe' list as well.

Festival or no festival is not at all a matter, I do this very often at home as 'no one' says 'no' to this payasam. The unique taste of this payasam is the gift from the Natural flavours of the real fruits. 
Which to add & What to skip?
  • Apple, Pineapple, Banana, Chikoo, Jackfruit, Guava, Fresh fig, Mango and any sweet fleshy fruits can be added to this payasam.
  • True to say, Apple tastes heavenly when added to the payasam.
  • All kinds of citrus fruits should be skipped as they tend to curdle the milk. In case of adding the citrus fruits like Orange or Sweet Lime, make sure the Payasam cools down to the room temperature which helps prevent the curdling of milk.
The fruits I add will vary each time keeping Apple and dates as the constant fruits. I usually grate apples which combine with the milk making the Fruit Payasam very special with the unique fruity flavour. After adding the fruits, cook for about 5 minutes to help the fruits release their natural flavour. And the final tempering of Nuts in ghee would lend the perfect finish to the Payasam.

Which is the right Consistency?
  • I usually make this payasam little thicker than the usual payasam as the tiny tits & bits of fruits and the well-cooked broken wheat would be heavenly to enjoy.
  • There is nothing wrong with making it runny. The thin consistency can be achieved if we add an extra half a cup of milk. Just go ahead with what you want.
Any alternate for Milk?
  • Of course! Yes.
  • The coconut milk is a tasty yet healthy alternate for cow's milk.
  • Though the Broken Wheat Payasam made with coconut milk tastes super yummy with coconutty flavour, it sometimes could dominate the background fruity notes.
  • You can use Almond milk which also would taste great.
Furthermore, I use thick filtered Jaggery syrup for this recipe. Believe me, Jaggery and Broken wheat are a good couple and please step the Sugar away from the room. I have the habit of storing Jaggery Syrup in the refrigerator which gives hand in my jiffy days for making super yummy desserts. If you don't have the one, feel free to make syrup out of 3/4 cup of Jaggery and add the filtered syrup to the payasam.

How to Serve? Hot or Cold?
  • Go Hot or Go Cold. Either way, it tastes insanely delicious.
  • We enjoy the first round hot, straight from the burner. And the next round cold, straight from the fridge 😄
So, the super-easy and super-delicious Broken Wheat Fruit Payasam from my 'WOW recipe list' is what we gonna see again in the updated post along with the video. Can't wait? Let us go into the ever delicious payasam recipe.

Step-by-Step Procedure with Pictures

How to Make?

  • Take a cup of Broken Wheat in a pressure cooker. I have taken Samba Broken Wheat for this recipe. 
  • Wash the Broken Wheat well and drain off the water completely.
  • Add 2 & 1/2 cups of water to the Broken wheat.
  • Pressure cook the Broken Wheat for 2 to 3 whistles or until done.
  • Once the pressure settles down, open the lid and add 2 & 1/2 cups of boiled milk to it. You can substitute cow's milk with coconut milk or almond milk.
  • Now, add in the Jaggery syrup. If you don't own a handy syrup, take 3/4 cup of Jaggery along with 1/4 cup of water, make a syrup, filter it and then add to the payasam. 
  • Add in the sliced Chikoo. You can fine-cut the fruits, slice or even grate them.
  • Add in the sliced or grated apple.
  • Chop or slice the dates and add them as well.
  • Chop or slice the dried fig and add them also. Any sweet fleshy fruits could be added at this stage. Mix the fruits well.
  • Let the fresh and dry fruits cook for about 5 minutes. This better helps release the flavour from the fruits. 
  • Add a teaspoon of ghee to a ladle.
  • Take 1/4 cup of chopped cashews and raisins and roast them in the ghee.
  • Add the ghee-roasted nuts to the Broken Wheat Fruit Payasam as a final touch.
  • Serve the Broken Wheat Fruit Payasam hot or Cold.

  • Any fruits except citrus fruits could be added to the payasam. 
  • In case, you love to add orange kind of fruit, wait till the payasam comes to room temperature and then add.
  • I reveal the secret here, Apple gives a distinct flavour to the payasam. Skip any fruits but dare not skip an apple.

  1. பசும்பாலிற்கு பதில் தேங்காய் பால் சேர்த்தும் செய்யலாம்.. சுவையான ரெஸிபி..

    1. Yes, Broken Wheat with Coconut milk is a great combination. But, coconut milk dominates the fruity flavor in a fruit payasam. So, I prefer cow's milk in this recipe.
