Sushi rice(Japanese rice) and coconut milk pudding

I liked Sushi rice (Japanese rice), because of it's small, cute texture and  it retains the shape even after cooking. For yesterday's Apple picking and potluck I prepared this pudding and it turned it delicious.

I prepare this Pudding or payasa in two different ways, both ways, payasa turns out great, give it a try.

Method 1:

Japanese rice or any other rice of your choice. - 1/2 cup
Coconut milk - 1 cup
Cow Milk pr Soy milk - 11/2 cup
Water - 1 cup or as needed
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Honey - 2-3 Tbs
Fresh ground cardamom - 1 tbs
Raisins - 2 Tbs

  • Rinse the rice and cook with water. Check for water consistency, if it becomes too thick, you may want to add little water but do not overdo.
  • Once the rice are cooked, add coconut milk and milk.
  • Bring it to boil, stirring every now and then. Be careful, it will get stuck to the bottom.
  • Add sugar and honey.
  • Add ground cardamom and mix well.
  • On a medium heat keep stirring for 10 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat.
  • Serve warm or chilled.
  • Enjoy
Method 2 : Simple Akki Payasa (My mom's version)


Rice - 1/2 cup
Milk - 2 cups
Water -1 cup
Jagari or brown sugar or Sugar - 3/4 cup

Steps are same as the Method 1, only you will not be adding coconut milk and honey but both tastes yummy.  Enjoy.
