Rice - 1/2 cup
Jaggery- 1 1/2 - 2 cup
Ghee - 1/2 cup
Cook rice and keep aside
Melt jaggery by adding little water in a saucepan , add cooked rice to it and cook for few minutes. Add ghee slowly to the mixture.Simmer the stove until the payasam becomes thick . For the aroma add little cardamom powder.
Fry cashewnuts in ghee and garnish the payasam with cashewnuts.
We usually dont make this payasam at home ,we get this payasam from temple as prasadam.Usually in ney payasam a lot of ghee is added ,its very very rich...I didn't add that much ghee ...Those who are not scared of eating more ghee can add 1 to 1 1/2 cup ghee.
