Brown Rice Paal Payasam/Brown Rice Milk Pudding

Brown rice is a highly nutritious food. It is a whole grain that is relatively low in calories, high in fiber, gluten-free and can be incorporated into a variety of dishes. Since brown rice is a good source of magnesium, phosphorus, selenium,thiamine, niacin, Vitamin B3 obviously its high in fiber. When the outermost layer of a grain rice (the huskà is removed) brown rice is produce.Brown rice has a shelf life of approximately 6 months but hermetic storage, refrigerating or freezing can extend their lifetime.The cooking time of brown rice needs generally a longer cooking times than the usual white rice.Brown rice and white rice have similar amounts of calories and carbohydrates. I have been cooking with brown rice since a long, however i seriously want to showcase some of brown rice dishes which i usually cook for our weekly menu. I have couple of dishes to post but still i picked this alluring, creamy brown rice payasam aka milk pudding to post for this week's blogging marathon.

Brown rice Paal payasam
I prepared this creamy Brown rice milk pudding for this year's Tamil new year's lunch platter. Though i prepared a simple thali for the feast, this brown rice milk pudding turned out our lunch more delicious than i imagined. I used pressure cooker for making this ultimate paal payasam, hence the whole cooking process took me just 15 minutes, yes trust me pressure cooking helps a lot to reduce the cooking time. As much as like most of the payasams, i used sweetened condensed milk to bring the sweetness hence this droolworthy paal payasam turned out more creamy and delicious, obviously this paal payasam turned out extremely yummyilicious. If you are a follower of my space, you guys might have noticed that am running a month of blogging marathon with 4 different themes for 4 weeks. And this week's theme for this Mega marathon is 'Wholegrains'. After dishing out 4 different dishes with rye flour,quinoa,oats, broken jowar, i couldnt stop myself posting this delightful brown rice paal payasam for this week's theme.

Paal payasam with brown rice sounds as inviting as with white rice. I guess it would have tasted even similar too.
