Red rice flakes payasam is hearty, flavorful dessert you can make on festival occasions or even for your sudden sweet cravings. Full video, step by step photos.

Many years back, I mean more than 10 yrs, I heard my fried saying she had a several servings of red rice flakes payasam in an lunch get together. She asked me to try as well, but I did not take it serious as I make aval payasam very often. In recent few years only I have started buying red rice flakes and mostly make upma or north Indian style poha. I prepare whenever I feel like having something filling. But this is the first time I am making payasam and totally in love with it. So much flavour and texture in it.

📋Ingredients

  • Red rice flakes (I used thick vaierty)
  • Sugar
  • Milk
  • Cashews
  • Condensed milk (optional)

📋 Summary

First sieve out any impurities/ dust in red rice flakes. Roast it well in ghee and pressure cook it with milk and water for a whistle. Once done, add sugar and condensed milk. Adjust the consistency as needed with milk or water. Simmer for couple of minutes and finally garnish with some ghee fried crisp cashews.

📖Variations

You can skip the condensed milk and add sugar itself fully. Just one more tbsp, so total 3 tbsp of sugar is enough.
