Pal Payasam/ Rice Kheer/ Rice Pudding In Crock pot

This summer has been an adventure filled one. Travel and meeting with family and friends has been in our cards. Last week when I was visiting my sister I made pal payasam on great demand from my niece and my daughter. Over the years, I have been making the payasam in the crock pot and it never fails me. For Krishna Jayanthi, I thought it would be great to post on pal payasam.

Happy Krishna Jayanthi!!

When ever I think of pal payasam, I am reminded of Guruvayur, where they serve it as prasadam. Apart from preparing it for prasadham, it happens to be a very popular dessert in Indian restaurants. An easy way to prepare it with very little effort but get the best result is by using the crock pot. Its awesome when you have to make it for a party or a get together. Adding a bunch of ingredients to the crock pot takes a few minutes. For many hours the crock pot cooks the rice individually and thickens the milk. When I have to make it on large scale, I start preparing it the previous night and the payasam is ready when you wake up in the morning. Here is my go to recipe for pal payasam for celebrating the birth of Krishna.


Crock pot
Measuring Cups and Spoons

Serves: 4
Time: 5 hours on high setting

Milk ( 2% or more) - 4 cups
Water - 1/2 cup
Rice - 2 fist full
Non Fat Condensed Milk - 1/2 cup ( add more if you like it sweeter)


1. Rinse the rice in water and add to the crock pot. Add half cup water and milk. Turn on the crock pot. If you are doing it over night, set it on low else set it on high. Took me 5 hours for the above recipe.

5. Once the rice is cooked ( 4 and half hours), add the condensed milk and allow it to cook for half an hour. Serve warm or cool it and chill it in the fridge and serve.

  2. Delicious payasam. Perfect for the season and love the clicks.

  3. Never used a crock pot. I guess it is ideal for pal payasam. Slow cooking without needing to keep a watch. I saw another recipe that was made in the pressure cooker too.
