Milk Payasam (Doodha Paays)

There are many payasams/payasas that we make for festivals/special occasions. By modifying the ingredients/method slightly, entirely new sweetdish is made. Check out doodh paank, tandla paays, madagane. These all recipes have almost the same ingredients but taste very different due to the slight difference in method. My mother used to prepare this paays, we used to like it very much.

1/4 cup rice
1/4 cup Sugar
4 cups milk
2 tea spn cashew nuts
2 tea spn raisins
1/4 tea spn Saffron strands
1/4 tea spn cardamom powder

Soak rice in water for about half an hour.Grind it with some milk (about 2 tablespoons ) to a coarse paste.Boil the remaining milk in a pan. Add the ground paste of rice to the milk while stirring it continuously.Add cashews, raisins and saffron to this mixture and continue to heat it till they are cooked. Add sugar and boil for two more minutes. Sprinkle cardamom powder.
Milk paayasam is ready to serve.
