Paramannam/Annam Payasam is a traditional South Indian delicacy made on all festive occasions. We prepare Paramannam as ‘Prasadam’(offering to God).Paramannam can be served hot or cold as a dessert and is prepared with rice, milk and sugar or jaggery and garnished with raisins and cashewnuts. This is a simple and easy to cook dish. On this Krishnashtami I prepared Paramannam as Prasadam for “Lord Krishna Makhan Chor”.

Ingredients:

1 cup raw rice washed and drained
1 cup sugar or grated jaggery
2 lt milk
1/2 tsp ground green cardamom
fried cashewnuts and raisins for garnish
2 tbsp ghee(clarified butter)for frying cashewnuts and raisins




Method:-

Wash and soak rice in water for about fifteen minutes.
Heat a pan and bring milk to a boil.Lower heat and add the rice to the milk.Cook until the rice is soft and the mixture looks thick.Remove from heat and cool.
Add the sugar and mix well and keep stirring till it mixes well.
Heat ghee in a skillet and add cashew nuts. Fry for 1-2 mts till the cashewnuts turn light brown. Add raisins and stir for a few seconds.Add this along with the remaining ghee to the cooked rice.Add cardamom powder and mix well.Turn off heat and keep covered for 5 minutes.Serve hot or cold.

This recipe is reaching Krishna - Ganesh Chaturthi Event hosted by Purva
