RICE PAYASAM

One of the traditional recipes made with rice and jaggery. Easy to prepare also a neivedyam especially when we offer Pongal for Sun god. I have used raw rice for this but can use even boiled rice.

Ingredients

  • Rice …..1 cup
  • Jaggery…1 to 11/2 cup
  • Ghee….3 tbs
  • Cardomom powder…1tsp
  • Milk 3/4 litre.
  • Cashews and kismis…1 tsp

Can cook rice separately too.

Method

1. Powder jaggery put it in a thick bottom pan and mix well with little water.

2.Filter the syrup to remove the dirt from the syrup.

3.After removing the dirt keep again for some more time so that it becomes more syrupy that is more thicker.

4.Add cooked rice to the the syrup and cook till it blends.

5.When it blends well add milk to it.

6.Finally add fried cashews and kismis.
