Paal payasam or rice kheer is a traditional and delicious south lndian payasam/ kheer variety made with just three main ingredients like milk, rice and sugar. Originally we used to cook the rice in boiling milk in open pot method  but it takes a lot of time thus nowadays we pressure cook it which reduces the cooking time to half.  Check out the yummy paal payasam recipe below.
