Wishing all my friends and readers a very happy and prosperous Vishu!
Today's recipe is an irresistible payasam.. sweet and delicious. It is made with aval/poha/beaten rice and milk and sugar.You can use jaggery instead of sugar.But I love aval pal payasam and it is quick recipe which can be made in a jiffy.I used the thick variety of white aval/poha. This recipe will serve 4-5 people.
Aval/poha/beaten rice- 1 1/2 cup
Milk- 3 1/2 cups
Condensed milk- 1 cup
Sugar- 3 tbs
(adjust according to sweetness)
Crushed cardamon- 5-6
Raisins and cashew nuts- a few
Ghee- 2 tbs
In a sauce pan bring milk to a boil.
Heat 2 tbs of ghee in a heavy pot vessel and add cashew nut and fry for a minute followed by raisins.Saute till they change color drain and set aside.
Now to the same pan add aval and fry in medium flame till it slightly changes color and becomes crispy.Allow this to cool a bit.
Into this add warm milk and cook till the aval becomes soft. Stir occasionally. This will take around 4-5 minutes.
Add sugar,condensed milk and simmer till it attains desired consistency.
Add crushed cardamon and stir well and finally add the ghee fried cashew nuts and raisins. Payasam is ready
Hope you will all enjoy
