Paal Payasam | பால் பாயாசம் | Milk Kheer

Paal payasam is rich and exotic dessert usually prepared during festivals. This is a quick payasam recipe. I usually prepare this payasam for Krishna Jayanthi. As Krishna Janmashtami is nearing, I decided to post this recipe now... 

Ingredients :-
-------------------
 Milk      2 Cups 
 Raw rice      3 tbsp  
 Sugar    ½ cup
 Ghee   2 tsp
 Saffron     few  

Method :-
-------------

1). Roast rice in a pan with a tsp of ghee in medium flame till you get a nice aroma. Make sure the color doesn't change. Keep aside.
 

2). Grease a tsp of ghee in a pressure cooker and pour the milk along with the roasted rice. Pressure cook for 2 whistles and switch off !


3). Once the pressure releases, mash the cooked rice with a ladle. Add sugar along with a pinch of salt and stir well. Simmer for another 10 minutes or till it reaches desired thick consistency and switch off !



Garnish with saffron and serve warm or chill.

Notes :-
-----------
# When payasam cools down, it thickens. So, accordingly adjust the consistency when switching off. If it thickenes more you can add warm milk and adjust the consistency. 
# I like this payasam to be plain, but you can very well add chopped nuts. 
# You can also use cardamom instead of saffron.
