The much awaited festival is here. The first day of Navratri, which is Padya is celebrated tomorrow. I am sharing this interesting and unique Bamboo Rice Milk Payasa recipe to start off the festival. Wishing you all a very happy Navratri / Dushehra / Dasara.
Soak Bamboo Rice for 12 hours. Sieve and crush the Bamboo Rice in hand. In a cooker, add the Bamboo Rice and 3 glasses of water. Pressure cook for 3 to 4 whistles. Open the lid and add more water if required.
Remove to a thick-bottomed pan and stir for 2 minutes. Add Sugar and cook for 5 minutes stirring continuously. Add Milk and cook until little thick. Add Elaichi powder and mix.
Remove to a serving dish and add your choice of dry fruits.
