Pal Payasam


Pal Payasam or Kheer is a popular sweet in India & liked by all. Its made by all for all major festivals & a must for every wedding too. Its a nice dessert and you can make it real quick too.

Heres my version of Pal Payasam!

Ingredients:

Whole Milk - 5 cups
2% milk - 5 cups
Raw Rice - 3/4th cup
Sugar - acc to taste

Method:

1. Wash the rice & set aside.

2. In a cooker add water( as u keep for cooking rice) & keep a big vessel & pour in the milk. Add the washed rice & cover the vessel with a lid. Close the cooker & put on the weight.

3. Keep for 2 whistles. Then turn gas to low & keep for another 45 minutes. Turn off & then once cool completely only open it.

4. Add required sugar & stir in well... serve slightly warm or cold, however u like it!

Enjoy your Payasam!

The colour is awesome Seema.. Now I know what I did wrong when trying to make this in the cooker.. I added the milk directly instead of in a vessel. Will try it this way next time - Thanks! :)
