Sabudhana payasam

This is another dessert. Its very common in Tamilnadu Iyer families to make payasam using sabudhana. First time I made this payasam without soaking sabudhana in water. It didn't came out well. Again I tried making this payasam after soaking sabudhana in water for 3 hours. Here is the receipe.

Ingredients :-
  1. Sabudhana - 1 cup
  2. Milk - 4 cups (preferably whole milk or 2% milk)
  3. Sugar - 2 or 3 cups (acc to taste)
  4. Cardamom powder - a pinch
  5. Pacha karpooram - a pinch
First Soak sabudhana in water for 3 hours. After three hours wash it and pressure cook it with 2 cups of milk, upto 3 whistles. After opening the pressure cooker, add the remaining milk and turn the stove to low. Let it cook for another 15 mts. Stir it every two minutes make sure nothing it burnt:) Now add the sugar and let it cook for another 5 mts. Turn off the stove. Finally add cardamom powder and pacha karpooram to it and close the lid. After 5 mts. open the lid. Now payasam is ready to serve.

If you like to garnish it, fry few cashews and raisins in ghee, to golden brown and pour it on top of the payasam.
