Ripe Plantains : 2 nos (250gm)
Jaggery : 250gm approx
First extraction of the coconut milk - Take 1 whole coconut grated and blend it in a blender. We need here 3 extracts.
Then in a pan with little water melt the jaggery and keep aside. Now in another thick bottom pan heat ghee and add in the blended plantain and melted jaggery and saute till it becomes thick. It should be very thick (varatti edukanam). Then add in the 3rd extract and cook till it beocmes thick. Keep sauting so that it doesnt dry up at the bottom. Then once thickened add in the 2nd extract and cook for 5-7 mins. Then add in the 3rd extract and switch off flame. Fry the cocnut pieces, nuts and raisins in ghee and add on to the payasam and VOILA your sweet payasam is ready!!!... hai na easy :)
