Kerala Paal Payasam Recipe - Unakkalari Payasam - Onam Sadya Recipes

I love to try different Kheer recipes. For me this is one way of having milk. Sometime I don't add sugar or fry the nuts in ghee. However for the festival / Naivedyam I end up doing with sugar and ghee. Unakkalari rice is new to me. I started seeing this after I started blogging. I have seen Kanji and Payasam with it. So I have decided to try it out for this new year. It is so creamy and tasty. I have used Raw sugar. You can use Jaggery too. Happy vishu / new year. This Kheer or payasam doesn't require any ghee or nuts. So go ahead and use full fat milk to balance it 

Unakkalari rice - 1/4 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup (I have used 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon)
Milk - 2 cup (I have used full fat milk)
Water - 1/2 cup
Cardamom powder - a pinch


Take the Rice in mixer or food processor and make broken rice rawa.
Wash the rice and add 1 cup of milk, water and cook the rice till 4-5 whistle. Let it cool down. When it is ready to open open it 
Add sugar. Mix it well. Add rest of the milk and let it boil till till desired consistency
Add Cardamom powder. Mix well. 
Switch it off. Serve it hot or warm or cold
