  5. Reduce heat to low, add in the ginger powder, cardamom powder and cooked sago pearls. Mix well and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  6. Then add in the thick coconut milk, cook for 1-3 minutes by stirring continuously at very low heat. Don't allow to boil.
  7. Remove from heat and set aside.
  8. Heat 1 tablespoon of ghee in a small pan, fry the cashew nuts until it starts to turn light golden in color.
  9. Then add in the raisins, fry until the raisins are puffed up. Pour this over the payasam.
  10. In the same pan add the sliced coconuts, add ghee if needed. Fry until golden in color. Add this along with ghee into the payasam.
