As Tamil Varuda Pirappu is just in the doorstep i thought to share this easy recipe. Chithrakkani/Tamil Varuda Pirappu falls on 1st Chithirai month of tamil Calendar. People welcome it by preparing sweets and some special recipes. Temple visit is a must on this day and all temples will be crowded with people.

This is simple payasam made with wheat rava which can be served as nivedhyam for god. I have used here jaggery but normal sugar can also be used. It tastes great.
