Kavuni rice kheer (paayasam)

  1. Kavuni rice – 1/2 cup
  2. Water – as required
  3. Palm crystals or Palm jaggery – 1/2 cup
  4. Cocount milk – 1 cup

  6. Cashewnuts – 8 nos.

  1. Soak Kavuni rice for minimum 6 hours. Wash the rice and transfer it to a pressure cooker and cook for 15 minutes. Let it cool down. Use a mixer grinder jar and grind to a coarse paste. If required, add very little water to grind.
  2. Meanwhile extract fresh coconut milk and keep aside. Similarly dry roast cashewnuts and keep it ready.
