Pal payasam -Pressure cooker method



Ingredients:
Milk:  4 cups
Basmati Rice: 1/4 cup
Sugar: 1/2 cup
Cardomom powder: a pinch
Cashewnuts: 1 tablespoon
Raisins: 1 tablespoon
Ghee: 1 tsp


Procedure:
Step1:
Wash the basmati rice and keep it aside


Step2:
Boil 2 cups of milk in a pressure cooker.Once the milk comes to a boil add the washed rice.
Close the cooker with the weights on and cook in a very low flame for 20 minutes (on gas mark 2)


Step3:
Switch off the flame after 20 minutes. Once the steam has come out of the cooker open it.The milk would have turned pink by now.Add the sugar and mix well. Add the remaining milk as well and bring it to a boil


Step4:
Close the cooker again with weights on cook for another 20 minutes in low flame




Step5:
Open the cooker after 10 minutes and add cardamom powder.


Step6:
Fry the cashews in little ghee and add it to the payasam


Note:
Basmati rice gives a nice flavour and taste.Raw rice can also be used
I used a 3 liter cooker for the above measurement

  12. Never tried cooking milk under pressure, I always thought could be dangerous if milk overflows, but I guess cooking on a v.low flame did the trick, makes it quite simpler to cook.
