Paramannam or rice payasam is the most common prasadam in andhra.In my house mom used to make this for every festival as this is the most favourite dessert.Paramannam can be done with both sugar and jaggery but i prefer jaggery.This sweet can be eaten both warm or cold.

Ingredients:-

Raw Rice washed and drained 2 cups
Grated jaggery 1/2 cup
Milk 1 liter
Green cardamom 2 (crushed)
Fried cashewnuts and raisins for garnish
1 tbsp ghee(clarified butter)for frying cashewnuts and raisins

Method:-

Soak rice for 1 hour.
Drain water from the rice after one hour and add milk.
Cook till the rice is soft and if needed add little water or milk.
Mean while fry cashewnuts and raisins in the ghee.
Once the rice is cooked and is soft switch off the stove and add grated jaggery,cashewnuts and raisins.
Mix throughly and cover it until served.

PS:-After adding jaggery don't cook payasam,if cooked it will split.

The prasadams i made today.
