Jeedipappu Payasam (Kaju Kheer)

What I used:

Milk : 1 1/4 cup
Unsalted Cashews : 1/2 cup
Sugar : 1/3 cup
Non fat milk powder : 3 tbs
Water : 1 to 2 tbs
Sliced almonds : few
Ghee : 1 tsp

How I did:
  • Soak cashews in water for an hour or more. Drain and grind them into smooth paste.
  • Combine cashew paste and milk in a saucepan and bring it to boil stirring in between.
  • Make a paste by dissolve milk powder in 1 or 2 tbs of water. Add sugar and milk powder paste to the boiling milk and cook until all the sugar is melted and it comes to a boil stirring continuously.
  • You can completely avoid milk powder and add 1 or 2 more tablespoons of sugar for the sweetness which it gives but the milk has to be boiled for quite a long time to thicken.
  • Switch off the stove and transfer to the serving dish.
  • In a pan heat a little ghee and toss the almond slices in it for a while.
  • Sprinkle these almond slices on to the payasam.
  • Serve as a dessert.
