Carrot Paal Payasam

 Paal Payasam is a regular in my house during most of the festivals but addition of carrot to it is something new and we loved this new avatar of paal payasam. Carrot Paal payasam is my second entry under the theme of Carrots for Blogging Marathon #23
Basmati rice     1/4 cup
Milk                 1 lt
Sugar              1/4 cup(add more according to the taste)
Carrots            3 big
Saffron           few strands
Cashew          few
Raisins           few
Ghee             1tsp

Fry the cashew and raisins in hot ghee and keep it aside
Soak the saffron strands in 2 tbsp of warm milk
Wash and soak the rice for 1/2 hour
Wash and scapre the carrot. Cut them into small pieces and steam it and kep aside. I steam the carrots in MICRO HIGH MODE FOR 5 MINUTES. Let it cool
Grind the rice coarsely and then add the cooked carrot and grind finely and keep it aside
Meanwhile Boil the milk in a deep Kadai and when the milk has considerably reduced, add the carrot rice mixture and mix well so that lumps are not formed.
Continue to cook in a medium flame for 5 minutes
Now add the sugar and mix and cook for few minutes
Pour the saffron milk on this and mix well
Decorate it with the fried cashews and raisins. I avoid this as my daughter prefers it without that
Switch of the heat and let it cool
Serve the yummy payasam !!!
