Soak the saffron in 1 tsp of milk and keep aside.
Wash the rice well and soak in water for about an hour.
Boil milk in a thick bottomed vessel.
Add soaked rice to the boiling milk.
Cook on medium heat with occasional stirring to prevent milk from getting stuck in the pan and getting burnt.
Maintaining low heat and stirring is essential to avoid milk from boiling over also.
Let rice cook well in the milk. This will take at least 25 minutes.
After the rice is cooked well, add sugar and the soaked saffron.
Continue stirring and cooking on low flame till the contents of the pan thicken again after becoming a little watery with dissolved sugar.
Let the mixture cook on low-heat for about 20 minutes till the mixture blends well and has a pouring porridge consistency. During this process the cooked rice absorbs sweetness and the flavouring.
Remove the payasam from fire and keep aside.
Put 1 tsp of ghee into a small frying pan on a low flame. Fry the nuts and raisins and add to the payasam.
Add cardamom powder and mix well.
Halu payasaa naivedyam is ready.
For a richer texture use condensed milk and normal milk in equal proportion.
