Rice payasam

"May the sun radiate...
peace, Prosperity and
happiness in your life always......"


Rice payasam is one among my favourite & quickly becomes ur favourite too.... It's rice pudding typically made by boiling rice with milk and sugar. It is often flavored with cardamoms, saffron, pistachios or almonds. It’s a delightful dessert for anytime of the year and is served in almost many of Indian festivals & celebrations. While the dish is traditionally made with rice, it can also be made with other ingredients such as vermicelli (sayviah) which is a thin noodle.

My mom makes this with lots of nuts especially cashews & raisins, this add good flavour, aroma & richness to the rice pudding. Now, its my hubby fav too...

Ingredients :
  1. Basmati rice - 1/2 cup
  2. Sugar - 1/2 cup (as per ur taste)
  3. Whole Milk - 4 cups plus coconut milk - 1/2 cup
  4. Cardomom powder- 1/2 tsp
  5. Broken cashews - 1 tsp
  6. Raisins - 1 tsp
  7. pistachio crushed - 1 tsp
  8. Saffron - a pinch
  9. Ghee - 1 tbsp
  10. Condensed milk - 3 tbsp
Ready to eat :
  • Wash & soak the rice for 1/2 hr in water.
  • Boil the milk, in a heavy bootom pot. When the milk comes to a boil, add the rice & sugar and simmer. Stir to insure that the milk does not stick to the bottom.
  • Cook till the rice is cooked and the milk thickens and reduces to half its original volume.
  • Heat ghee on a low flame & add cashews, raisins and pistachios.
  • Add the roasted nuts, cardomom powder, condensed milk in the payasam & mix well.
  • Garnish it with a pinch of saffron & rose petals.
Enjoy this Pongal with this georgeous looking rice payasam & it taste yummy yummy.....
