Aval Payasam

HI all,
I have published 450 recipes as of today. And wanted to post something sweet. This is one of my favourit payasam and I have not made this for quite sometime. So contributing this recipe as my 450th recipe with a Sweet.

Aval - 1 cup
milk - 1/2 a lt
Jaggery (powdered)- 2 handful
cardamom - 3
saffron - 1 pinch
ghee - 2 tsp
cashews - 4 - 5 (chopped)
raisins - 10
badam - 3 (soaked for 3 hrs in hot water)

- peel and chop the badam
- soak the aval in water for 10mins
- squeeze and remove, leave it aside
- add jaggery and some water
- bring it to a boil
- strain the jaggery mixture and keep it aside
- in a pan add ghee, add badam,cashews and raisins
- fry
- powder the cardamom coarsely
- add the cardamom powder and aval
- fry for 2 mins
- add the jaggery mixture and milk
- allow that to come to a boil
- when its cooked add the saffron
- remove from fire
- as the payasam cools, it would get thicker.
