How to make Pal Payasam
Prep time – under 10 mins
Cook time – under 40 mins
Serves – 2-3
Milk – 4 cups (full fat preferable for creamy kheer)
Basmati rice – 2 tbsp
Ghee – 1 tsp (clarified butter)
Sugar – 1/4 cup – 1/2 cup according to your preference
Saffron – few strands (soak it in a tbsp of milk)
Cardamom powder – generous pinch
Heat a tsp of ghee and fry the basmati rice for a few minutes. Do not over fry until it turns brown.
After 30 minutes (total time), my payasam looked thick and creamy as shown in the picture below.
Then add saffron, cardamom powder and mix well. Serve hot or cold. It’s delicious either cold or hot.
This payasam does not need raisins or nuts as the taste and flavor of the milk itself is divine.
