Of Flavours & Tastes…

Nenthrappazham Prathaman


5 medium size blet nenthrapzham
200gm jaggery
1/4 cup water
4-5 tbsp ghee
3/4 cup thick coconut milk (onnam paal)
2 cups thin coconut milk (randam paal)
3 cups very thin coconut milk (moonam paal)
(3 coconuts you may need)
1/4 cup chopped coconut
1/4 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp ginger powder (chukku podi)


Steam the bananas with skin.Once it’s cool,peel and clean the outer fibres and inner seeds.Mash the bananas either with hand or in a small mixer.Boil the jaggery with water and strain.In a thick bottomed vessel or ideally in an Uruli mix the mashed banana with jaggery syrup and start cooking.Use a spatula and mix well.This mixture should be roasted well in low medium fire adding ghee in between.Once the mixture start separating from sides,pour the very thin coconut milk and cook in full flame.Mix in between and cook till this liquid turns thick.Now pour the thin coconut milk and again bring to a boil.Cook till this turns thicker and switch off the stove. Immediately add the thick coconut milk along with ginger and cumin powders.Mix well.In fact after adding the thick coconut milk you are not supposed to cook payasam since it will spoil the taste.Heat ghee in a small pan and roast the chopped coconut and pour this over Prathaman.Let payasam rest for a while and serve with pappadam !
