I was waiting to make this payasam for quite sometime but i couldn’t find red rice here in Bahrain. So this time when i went to India “Paysam rice” was topping my shopping list :). I had tried making pal payasam before in a pressure cooker, for the first onam after our wedding. The taste was good, but the effort was not worth it ( i had a hard time cleaning the cooker as well as the kitchen).

This time i just blindly followed the long method mentioned in Archana’s Spicyana, except for the quantity. I had only 1 litre milk and i was soooo determined to make the payasam today, come what may, i just took the half of what she has mentioned. Here goes the quantity that i used.

    Hi maria..

    payasam is really yummy…I really loved it…

    One simple note which i got from my mom…for pal payasam the rice used is a special red rice called ‘unkkal ari’…..I think this is available only in kerala….
