How to prepare Paal Payasa or Rice Kheer
Wash basmati rice under clean running water and soak it in warm water for one hour. In a cup of hot milk add saffron and keep it aside.
Heat milk in a thick bottomed vessel. When the milk boils, lower the flame and continue boiling.
Now add the soaked basmati rice to the boiling milk.
When the rice softens (which means it has been cooked) the milk would have thickened.
Add sugar, cardamom powder and milk in which saffron was soaked.
Cool the pudding and serve.
