Paal Payasam / Rice Kheer

Yummy traditional rice kheer.

Rice kheer is an integral part of kerala festivals like onam,vishu,karthika etc…usually Kerala desserts like ada pradhaman,wheat kheer etc… are a bit difficult to make. But this rice kheer is so easy to prepare and requires only a few ingredients. I used to prepare this kheer often for my son. He likes the crunchiness of nuts along with the sweetened rice.
