Idichu Pizhinja Payasam is no more a difficult payasam when we have readymade coconut milk available in the store. I know tamil, so, I can somewhat guess what's idichu pizhinja in malayalam means. I think it's a process of extracting the milk from the coconut. If you love coconut, here's a treat for you. This is my entry to RCI Kerala hosted by Jyothsna of Currybazaar Thanks Jyotsna, for hosting this event. I got this recipe from here. I did not extract the milk from the coconut, instead, bought the readymade coconut milk. So, the payasam was ready in minutes. Here is how I prepared.
Cooked rice - 1 cup
Jaggery - half cup
Sugar - half cup
Coconut milk - 1 can (400 ml)
Cardomom powder - 1 teaspoon
Melt the jaggery and sugar in a kadai adding just a teaspoon of water.
When it melts, add the cooked rice and mix well.
When the content heats up, empty one full can (400 ml) of coconut milk.
Mix well and add the cardamom powder.
Wait until one boil comes. Then, remove from heat.
This payasam is just fantastic, and very easy to prepare.
