Koova (Arrow Root) Payasam


  • 3-4 tbsp koova powder
  • 1-1½ cup grated jaggery
  • 1 cup freshly grated coconut
  • 1 tsp dried ginger
  1. Add 1-2 cups water to cover koova, mix well and let it sit for 5-10 min. Discard the water. Repeat as necessary, to clean koova.
  2. Add 3 cups water to jaggery and boil until all jaggery has dissolved and there are no lumps. Add grated coconut and dried ginger.  Cook for 1-2 min.
  3. Add 1/2 cup water to cleaned koova, stir well to get a syrup and gradually add it to the jaggery syrup, stirring constantly. Continue stirring until the mixture has thickened. Remove from heat.
Cleaning koova is essential only if impurities are thought to be present or are visible.
Cashew nuts fried in ghee can also be added to the mix, if desired.
