Paal Payasam Recipe| Milk & Rice Kheer| Payasam Recipes

The Blogging world has introduced me to so many new and interesting recipes. One such recipe is Paal Payasam. I am not aware of this recipe until I tasted it in my neighboring aunty's house. We make only Paruppu Payasam and Semiya Payasam. The funny thing is until now I call the Semiya Payasam as Paal Payasam without knowing what exactly Paal payasam is. We really loved having this payasam. Just for garnishing purpose I added Saffron, it changed the pure white color of the payasam. If you don't prefer adding saffron, skip it.
Full Cream Milk - 1 liter (4 Cups)  
Basmati Rice - 3 tblsp
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Rose essence - 2 or 3 drops
Ghee - 2 tsp
Cashews and Raisins - few
To garnish: 
Saffron - 3 to 4 strands (Optional)
1. In a pan add a tsp of ghee and roast the basmathi rice until nice aroma comes. Then grind it coarsely. 
2. In the same pan, again add a tsp of ghee and fry the cashews, raisins until it turns golden brown. Keep it aside. In a pressure cooker add 1 Cup of milk and bring to boil. Then add the ground basmathi rice.
3. Close the lid and pressure cook for 2 whistles in medium flame. Then simmer the flame and cook for another 5 to 7 mins. Switch off the flame. Once the pressure releases, switch on the flame again after adding the remaining milk and sugar. Simmer it and cook for another 15 - 20 mins until the Payasam becomes thick and creamy. Add the rose essence , fried cashews and raisins. Mix it well and switch off the flame.
Serve the yummy milk Kheer when it is hot or chilled. I prefer it to be chilled.
Points to remember:
  • Instead of rose essence you can add the cardamom powder as well.
  • I have used aavin green color, you can use any full fat milk to get the creamy Payasam.
  • Instead of grinding the rice, you can pressure cook it and then mash it with the ladle. But I prefer grounding it coarsely.
  • The Payasam looks pure white in color. Garnishing with saffron makes the Payasam pale yellow.
  • You can use raw rice instead of basmathi rice.
Warm Regards,
