New start with a sweet recipe... This payasam is similar to ambalapuzha paal payasam. It has a wonderful pinkish color to it. 


Basmati Rice - 1/4 cup
Whole Milk - 4 cups
Sugar - 1 cup


First wash the rice well. In a pressure cooker add basmati rice, milk and sugar close the lid. Cook on high flame with out the cooker weight till you can see steam coming out of the nozzle (Make sure to use a big cooker so that it is filled only half, otherwise milk will come out of the nozzle).

As soon as you see pressure coming out put the weight on and transfer cooker to a very low flame stove (It is better to keep another burner with very low flame ready before itself so that you can transfer the cooker on to it fast). Cook on this low flame for about 1 hour. After one hour switch off the stove,wait for all the pressure to leave, then open the cooker. Paal payasam is ready to be served.

Note: Always use whole milk ,it will give a pink color to the payasam.

I have garnished the payasam with almond flakes just to make the photo look good. This payasam tastes well when served as it is with out any garnish.
