Festivals are always a time for togetherness and fun. And what makes it even sweeter are the delicious sweets prepared for the occasion. This tasty Beaten Rice Payasam is one such recipe. This recipe is sweet, gratifying and well prepared.
3 fistfuls Beaten Rice/Aval/Poha (I used the Red variety)
1 and 1/2 litres - Cow's Milk; boiled
6 to 9 tablespoons - Sugar
3 to 4 tablespoons - Ghee
5 to 6 pods - Cardamom; skin taken out and seeds powdered
1 to 1 & 1/2 tablespoons - Raisins
10 to 15 Cashewnuts
Fry the beaten rice in ghee for a few minutes or till it reduces a little in quantity. Keep aside
Take a shallow pan and fry both the raisins and cashewnuts separately. Keep aside
Take a soup pot and pour into it the boiled milk. Add the lightly fried beaten rice into the milk and let it cook. (15 to 20 minutes approx.) At this time, add the sugar and cardamom powder and mix well. Cook till the payasam begins to become thick and the color of the payasam turns a light pinkish-brown. Switch off flame and throw in the fried dry fruits. Stir and close for a few minutes. Serve warm
