Though there are so many varieties of paal payasams, this one is very special and tasty because the rice is fried in ghee first and then pressure-cooked in milk here. This makes this kheer the most delicious dessert in your kitchen!!


Raw rice- 1 cup
Ghee- half cup
Thick milk- 2 liters
Broken Cashew nuts- 2 tbsp
Raisins- 3 tbsp
Saffron- ¼ sp
Cardamom powder-1/4 sp
Sugar- 3 cups


Heat a pan and pour the ghee.
On slow fire, first fry the cashew nuts and raisins and take them away.
Add the rice and fry them to golden brown.
Heat a pressure cooker and pour the milk.
Add the fried rice with the ghee, saffron, and cardamom powder.
Mix well. Close with the lid and pressure cook the milk with the rice to one whistle on medium fire.
Then reduce the heat to very low and cook for further 25 minutes.
Open the pressure cooker, add the sugar and further cook for some minutes until you get a slight thickened consistency.
