Cracked Wheat Payasam for MAITRI

Hope many of you might have heard about MAITRI, a friendship chain started by Priya and Reshmi. I got excited about this chain and immediately joined it. The main concept of this friendship chain is about sharing a mystery ingredient among the foodies who are part of this chain. The foodie who receives the mystery ingredient has to identify it and make a food item with it and post on the blog. Sounds interesting, right? Then what are you waiting for? Join in the friendship chain if you are not already a part of it.

As a part of this friendship chain, I was matched with Shylaja of South Indian Home, who sent me a mystery ingredient and also a cute cuddly bear. I identified the ingredient as cracked wheat/godhuma rawa/dalia and I was right.

Here is the recipe I made with this ingredient,


  • 1 cup Cracked Wheat (గోధుమ రవ్వ)
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp Ghee
  • Few Cashews, Raisins and Cardamom


Heat ghee in a pan and add cashews + raisins + cardamom seeds and sauté well until cashews turn golden brown in color and raisins bubble up.

Add cracked wheat and fry well until it changes color. Then add sugar and mix well. Later pour water + milk, mix well and keep on low flame until the rawa becomes soft and cooked.

When the mixture starts to thicken turn off the flame and leave the pan for some time.

Then transfer the payasam to a serving bowl and enjoy.
