Broken wheat carrot payasam/ Nuruku gothambu carrot payasam


  • Broken wheat           –  2 cups
  • Water                       –  5 cups
  • Jaggery to make thick jaggery syrup  –  700 gm
  • Thick jaggery syrup   –  3 cups
  • Carrot  grated            – 1 big
  • Ghee                          – 4 tbsp          
  • Third extract of coconut milk – 5- 6 cups
  • Second extract of coconut milk – 2 cups
  • First extract of coconut milk – 1 – 1 1/2 cups
  • Coconut pieces            – 2 tbsp
  • Cardamom powder – 2 tsp
  • Ginger powder  (optional)      – 1 tsp


Wash and soak broken wheat for 1/2 an hour. Pressure cook broken wheat in 5 cups of water till 3 whistles.
Melt 700 gm of jaggery in water. Strain for any impurities. Bring the jaggery syrup back to pan and thicken it to make 3 cups of jaggery syrup.

Heat 1 tbsp of ghee in a pan, add grated carrot and saute them well to remove the water content. Heat 1 tbsp in a pan, add coconut pieces. Keep fried coconut pieces aside.

Heat a heavy bottomed pan/uruli, add 2 tbsp of ghee, add the cooked broken wheat. Saute them well. Add jaggery syrup to this. Cook them till the jaggery syrup is somewhat coated on the broken wheat (don’t cook for long or don’t make it too thick). Add third extract of coconut milk. When it starts to boil, add second extract milk. Now add the sauteed grated carrots to this. When it starts to boil, cook for another 3 minutes, it will start to thicken. Add first extract coconut milk at this point along with the cardamom powder and ginger powder if necessary. Switch off the stove before it starts to boil. Garnish with fried coconut pieces and some sauteed carrots. Enjoy your Vishu Sadhya.

Note:- If the payasam is too thick, add diluted coconut milk.
           Adjust sweetness according to your taste.

 Happy Vishu to all my blog readers and friends

  1. Very yummy looking payasam. And carrot in payasam is new, but im sure the sweetness in carrot made the already tasty payasam taste better.
    Also the neck piece looks good 🙂

  2. This is a healthy version of payasam and I like it. the wheat and carrots are perfect as part of the ingredients, also the coconut pieces are exciting. Of course we need the creamy and sweet tastes for such a great and fabulous outcome.
