Quinoa – Coconut Payasam

Hope you all had a wonderful Deepavali. We had a good one too. I made this yummy and healthy payasam on Diwali day. Tasted super delicious and was a hit at our house. 

  • ½ cup Quinoa
  • ½ cup grated Coconut (fresh or frozen)
  • 6 cups Milk
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1 tsp Ghee
  • Few Cardamom seeds, Cashews, Raisins


Wash quinoa well, add 1 cup of water and pressure cook for 3 whistles. 

Meanwhile, bring milk to a boil. Add sugar mix well until it melts in the milk. Add cardamom seeds and mix well.

Finally add coconut + cooked quinoa mix well and keep the contents on medium low flame for some time.

When the milk seems to boil again, turn off the flame. 

Heat ghee in a small pan, add cashews + raisins and sauté well.

Pour this on top of the prepared payasam and mix well.

Enjoy this delicious payasam and feel happy :)
