Javvarisi Semiya Payasam
Semiya Payasam is my favorite but only next to Sago Payasam. Nowadays mittu is fond of sago payasam she calls it balls payasam :) Lately I am having a great liking towards payasam made with jaggery than sugar so wanted to try this combo of Javvarisi Semiya Payasam with jaggery.I made this payasam long back and it was sitting in my drafts waiting to get attention, as its Aadi 18 today thought to post this easy payasam.
