- 1/4 cup Navara rice
- 1/2l Milk
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon Sugar
- 6 pieces Cardamom
- 10-12 pieces Raisins
Boil 1 cup of water in a vessel. When the water boils add Navara rice into it and cook the rice in a low flame.
It takes a long time for the rice to get cooked. Meanwhile, boil the milk and keep it aside. Now check if the rice has below figure shows how it looks.
When it is done add milk into it and boil it for 10-15 minutes in low flame.
Now add butter into it. So that we get a creamy texture.
Now add sugar and stir it.
Continue stirring and add Cardamom and raisins into it, almost done.
Pour into a serving bowl and wait till it sets. You can try another version too as I told early. Keep it in the refrigerator to cool and try it.
Instead of adding sugar and butter separately, you can blend it both in a mixer and then add.
Rice boiled using pressure cooker will reduce the cooking time.
After cooking of rice the leftover water should not be drained. This is nutritious and will also give a peach colour to the payasam.
