Unakkalari Payasam (Pala Payasam)

By: Gayathri
Region: Kerala
Dish:Vegetarian - Others


Unakkalari(Kerala Raw Rice) - 1/2 cup
(Can replace unakkalari with basmati rice or sona masoori rice)
Full Cream Milk - 1 litre(4 cups)
Water - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Cardamom powder - a pinch


Take 1/2 cup raw rice , rinse it well and keep aside. I used broken unakkalari.

Take the raw rice in a pressure cooker, add 2 cups of milk and 1/2 cup water.

Add sugar, give a quick mix and keep the pressure cooker and switch on the flame...Keep in medium flame, When the steam starts coming out, put the pressure cooker weight and cook for 1 whistle.Once pressure releases open and add cardamom powder.

Once pressure releases, open and add the remaining 2 cups of milk and simmer in low flame for atleast 20mins and cook till it thickens and the payasam is cream and the color is pale pink.

If you have tulsi leaves you can add two or three to give an extra flavor.

Serve hot / cold.


If the payasam gets thick, you can dilute by adding little milk at the time of serving.
The more time you cook in low flame the payasam gets the flavour of rice and color.
