Nei payasam

Nei payasam is a very simple but delicious payasam made as a neiveydhyam in many Kerala temples. This is made at my home when we conduct Bhagavath Sevai. My dad makes this payasam very well. We make in large quantities in a big uruli and distribute it to the guests who come for Bhagavath Sevai.



Rice – 1 cup

Jaggery – 3 cups

Water – 3 cups


Cumin seeds – 1/2 tsp

  • Pressure cook the rice.
  • Dissolve the jaggery in  water, strain it  and allow it to boil. Make one string consistency.
  • Add the pressure cooked rice. Stir well until the rice mix with the jaggery.
  • Finally fry cumin seeds in ghee and mix with the payasam.
  • Note: Add 5 cups of jaggery for kadu mathuram and follow the same method.
