Kerala Sadya

Recipe for Paal Paayasam
  1. Kaima rice/Jeerakashala rice/Basmathi Rice - 2 cups
  2. Water - 4 cups
  3. Milk - 1 1/2 Litre
  4. Sugar - 2 cups (the sweetness of my sugar was less)
  5. Cardamom powder - 1/4 Tsp
  6. Ghee - 1 Tbsp
  7. Cashew Nuts - 10 to 15 slit
  8. Raisins - 2 Tbsp

  • Wash and drain water from rice. In a pressure cooker, add rice and water. Cook for 4 whistles on medium flame. Once done off the flame and allow the pressure to release.Transfer this to a bowl.
  • In the same cooker boil milk and cook on low flame.Let it reduce to 1 liter.
  • Add sugar and mix well until sugar dissolves.Add the cooked rice and mix well. If lumps are there just mash it using a spoon.
  • Now add cardamom powder. Switch off the flame and remove from fire.
  • Heat ghee in a pan , fry cashew nuts and raisins till golden brown. Pour this on to paayasam and mix well.
  • Serve it hot or cold.

  • The payasam thickens with time so switch it off accordingly.
  • Addition of cardamom powder is optional.
  • Also tempering cashew nuts and raisins in ghee is optional. You can directly add it.
