Rice Kheer / Payasam / Paal payasam Recipe.

Posted by Veena Karanth at 23:52:00
Rice Payasam or rice kheer is one of the famous South Indian recipes prepared during festivals and, more over, this paal payasam is a mandatory dessert during the devi pooja occasions. We prepare it during  the navarathri festival and the taste is mind blowing.  Here we mix boiled basmathi rice along with milk and sugar and garnish it with saffron and top it with dry fruits. We South Indians name this sweet prepared out of rice as kheer or payasam while the North Indians have their own version of rice kheer where they coarsely grind rice into powder and then boil it along with the milk. Taste differs and so does the procedure too. As of now I will be showing you the South Indian version, but I will come up with the North Indian version in the near future.

KitchenMasti Points.

  1. Soak the saffron in hot milk for 10  minutes till the milk turns its colour.
  2. Adding cashew paste is optional but it tastes unique and makes the kheer rich.
  3. Always use heavy creamed milk for this payasam since it adds richness to the kheer.
  4. It is always best to use basmathi rice for this dessert. Replacing it with any other variety may not taste unique.
  5. You may boil the rice in cooker too but boiling directly in a vessel has an edge over the pressure cooker method.
