Ari Payasam/Rice kheer with Brown Sugar
Basmati Rice -1/2 cup
Brown Sugar-1/3 cup/to your liking
Jeera(cumin) powder- 1/8 tsp
Cardamom powder- 2
Coconut Milk(canned)- 3/4 + 1/4 cup
Ghee (Clarified Butter)- 1 1/2 Tbsp
1.It's the same like we have explained here, except that you need to cook only rice for this recipe.
2.Once the rice is cooked add the ghee and the brown sugar and stir continuously till you get the one thread consistency. I found that brown sugar takes less time compared to jaggery.
3.Then add the diluted coconut milk (add 3/4 cup and 1 1/2 cup water to get this) while keeping on high heat and stirring and let the mixture boil well.
4.Switch off the heat and add the coconut milk with spice powders mixed and mix well.
5.Fry the cashews and raisins in ghee and garnish.
