Let me start my blog with something sweet!
Milk kheer or ‘pal paayasam’ as it is known in Kerala, is a favourite among all. Featured here, is an extremely simple version of this ever popular dish:
1. Rice (Raw rice or Basmati rice tastes better) : 1 cup
2. Milk : 4 cups
3. Sugar : ½ cup
4. Cardamom (powdered) : 4-5 nos
5. Mixed chopped nuts (Pista, Badam) : 1 Tbsp (optional)
Pressure cook the first four ingredients till two whistles come. After that, reduce the flame and cook for a further 30 minutes. After opening the lid, stir well and serve.
This kheer can be had either hot or cold. Before serving, garnish with the chopped nuts.
