Paal Arisi Kanji | Dessert

Paal Arisi Kanji - This is one dessert which I make very often. This is very easy to make. This recipe comes in hand when we have unannounced guests at home.

I say this to be an easy recipe because all the ingredients - milk, cooked rice and sugar are always available at home. This tastes little different to pal payasam since the rice is not cooked in milk. And with little less sugar this recipe would be a very good appetizer.


Milk - 1 litre
Cooked rice - 1 cup
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
Saffron - few strands
Ghee - 1 tbsp


  • In a wide mouthed vessel, boil the milk.
  • Once the milk starts boiling, lower the flame and add the cooked rice and sugar.
  • Stir well and boil the milk for another 10 minutes. 
  • Keep stirring so that the milk doesn't burn at the bottom of the vessel.
  • After 10-12 minutes, add the cardamom powder, ghee and saffron strands.
  • Mix well, switch off stove.

Dhideer payasam ready!!


  • This sweet can also be garnished with cashew nuts, raisins and other nuts.
