Pal Payasam is a rice pudding and a famous sweet dish of South India. It is prepared specially for auspicious occasions all across India. Rice is cooked in milk, sugar and loaded with nuts and raisins. I’m sharing an easy method to make it.

Pal payasam is also known as chwal ki kheer in North India. There are various variations to it and each region in India adds its own aroma and flavor to it. The rice has to be cooked on low flame in milk to get that nice texture and taste. It is prepared for any pooja in my house.
