Uluva Payasam

2 tablespoon Uluva
2 tablespoons rice
1/2 cup shredded coconut
3/4 cup jaggery (crushed) (add more if needed)

Soak the Uluva and rice together over night.
Add water and cook the mixture on a medium flame till rice is cooked and most of the water is absorbed.
Mash the mixture coarsely once it is cooked.
Add jaggery and coconut to the mixture and continue cooking for 5-10 minutes on low flame till the jaggery melts and the kheer thickens a bit.
Serve hot with a spoonful of ghee.

This is generally cooked for new moms since Uluva increases milk supply. jaggery always preferred over sugar for health as well as taste reasons. The sweetness of jaggery along with the slight bitterness and crunchiness of the Uluva are an excellent combination.

  2. Thank you, i recently came to know that Uluva is a wonder medicine for many health issues particularly for those having PMS problems and it is well supported by Ayurveda.

    I was searching for Uluva Kheer and i reached the right place. Thank You again
