For today's special Festival food it's again a Payasam. This is almost like the Kesar di Kheer that I had already posted. That was a rich rice pudding made with rice, milk and condensed milk. Today's payasam or Kheer is a milder, simple yet delicious rice kheer. We normally make this for a quick prasadam during festival time.
We make this payasam during festivals like Navaratri, other smaller festivals. Amma had made this on Akshaya Tritiya, and it really made the day very special.
The weekend passed away quickly, and we started yet another week of school and work.
Cooked Rice - 1 cup
Boiled Milk - 2 Cups
Cashews and Raisins - handful
Ghee for roasting
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Cardamom powder a pinch
How to make the Rice Payasam.
Wash and cook the rice, keep it aside.
Boil the milk and add the sugar.
Once it melts, add the cooked rice and pressure cook for 1 whistle.
Roast the nuts in a pan. Once the pressure falls, add the roasted nuts and cardamom powder
