Palpayasam or milk kheer is that inevitable sweet dish that is made during most festivals. It's amply sweet, milky and finger-licking delicious.
100g brown rice (rice with bran)
1 tsp cardamom powder
2 tsp ghee
Cook rice using half of the milk and water.
When rice is well cooked and the mixture thickens, pour in the remaining milk and bring to a boil.
Add sugar and cook a little more.
Remove from flame, add ghee and cardamom powder.
Mix well and serve.
