Paal Payasam (Rice Kheer / Rice Pudding)


It was my husband's birthday and I made paal payasam over the weekend. Actually birthday was just a pretext to make this delicious dessert. Usually, raw rice with bran (red rice or unakkalari) is used for making the payasam, giving the payasam a light pink color. Traditionally, the payasam is made in an uruli (a flat thick bottomed vessel made of bell metal). In modern kitchen, the payasam could be made in a thick bottom pot or in a pressure cooker. I used my pressure cooker as the thick bottom pot and used a fusion of the two methods.
