Pal Payasam Recipe


4 cups Whole Milk
1 teaspoon Ghee
3 tablespoon Sugar to taste
Pinch of Saffron
¼ cup Short/Medium Grained Rice
1-2 tablespoon Nuts (1used Almonds, Pistachios and Cashews)
4-5 Raisins
¼ teaspoon Cardamom Powder

How to make Pal Payasam

  • Heat ghee in a sauce pan
  • Add chopped nuts along with raisins in the sauce pan. Set it aside when the raisins get plump and nuts turn reddish brown.
  • Roast rice for 2-3 min in the same pan over low heat.
  • Add milk to the pan now and let it come to boil over medium-high heat. Stir it occasionally so that the milk does not stick to the bottom.
  • It is better to use a non-stick pan, to make sure that the milk does not burn.
  • Once the milk is boiled add sugar to it and stir it. Reduce the heat to medium and cook until the milk has reduced to half.
  • Once the rice gets cooked and becomes soft and when the milk becomes half, the Payasam is done.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and stir gently till the ingredients combine and then serve it garnished with the remaining nuts.
