    Cookgirl's Note:

    Adapted from Laurel's Kitchen vegetarian cookbook-the first vegetarian cookbook I ever bought. The original recipes uses brown rice cereal, which is equally good! I've made this many, many times for breakfast. My payasam I prefer on the thick side, so feel free to add more milk or less cereal. Comforting and delicious on a cold winter day.

      I made this for breakfast today. I must admit, I cut alot of corners. (I used margarine instead of butter and substituted equal parts of cinnamon and ground cloves for the cardamom, and I accidentally made the farina based on the box instructions in the microwave instead of making the thicker version posted here.) But it was good anyway. I definitely plan to make it again, maybe closer to the original recipe next time. Thanks!

      This is wonderful!! I never thought to use cardamom in my farina, but it worked really well. I also used 1 can coconut milk and added water to bring it to the 3 cups needed for the liquids (made 3-6 servings[love that feature]). It's very creamy that way, just the way we love it. Very simple recipe with loads of flavor. Thanks!

      This is a delicious breakfast cereal! I used less nuts and raisins and loved them toasted that way, sweet and spicy and buttery. Really enjoyed this - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT8, Chefs gone WILD!
