Ksheerannam (Rice Payasam) - On first day of Devi Navratri

Hi readers, Devi Navaratri(Sharad navaratri) started from today!! Dussehra is the most popular Hindus Festival. Here in Andhra Pradesh Dussehra is also called as Vijaya Dashami ..Vijaya means victory Dashami means 10th day. The first nine days celebrates as "Maha Navaratri". The nine days of celebration of worship of Lord Durga matha in different avatars. Every year this festival falls in the month of September or October. Here Dussehra celebrates grand with full of colours, flowers and with different naivedyams!! 


On this Navaratri days, I do worship Lord Durga Matha with different flowers like Gulabi, Chamanthi, Malli, Paarijatha pushpam, Ganneru, Sampangi,Virajaji etc. Today I worshiped Lord Durga matha in the form of Bala Tripura Sundari with Chamanthi flowers. I offered Vadapappu, Panakam,Ksheerannam and Sanagalu for Bala Tripura Sundari Devi. Usually i do Kumkuma Pooja for Lord Durga and chant all stotras related matha Durga. Out of all stotras Mahishasura Mardhini stotram, Ashtalakshmi stotram, Lalitha sahasranama stotram, Annapoorna ashtakam, are most powerful stotrams. These Mahanavaratri Naivedyams are very delicious and delactable. I started Mahanavaratri with a sweet 'Ksheerannam' for Lord Balatripura Sundaridevi. I have taken pics of naivedyam and posting the recipe on my blog. Let us see the ingredients and procedure to make  " KSHEERANNAM"


Ingredients :
Full cream milk                                - 6 cups
Rice (biyyam)                                - 1 cup
Yellow moongdal/pesarapappu     - 2 table spoons
Jaggery(bellam)                                - 2cups (grated or powdered) 
Ghee                                               - 3 or 4 spoons

Raisins                                             -  8 no
Yelakula podi / Elachi powder          - 1/4 table spoon


Procedure :
1. Wash the rice, and yellow moongdal several times with clean water
     and drain. Keep aside
2.  Boil the milk in a thick bottomed vessel on medium flame. Stir milk 
      continuous to avoid the milk solids from sticking at the bottom..
3.  To the boiling milk, add drained rice and moongdal and stir.
4.   Cook the rice till it becomes mushy and soft. Stirring once in few 
      minuites is needed.
5.  Once the rice is cooked well in milk, add ghee and elachi powder, mix
     well and mash the rice with ladle. Switch off the flame.
6. Now add grated jaggery to the cooked rice and mix to blend everything
    well.
7. Heat a small pan with 1 table spoon of ghee, add broken cashew
     nuts, fry them till golden, then add raisins,stir they swell and pour 
     this to rice payasam (khseerannam).
8. Garnish with fried Cashew nuts and raisins.
9. Ksheerannam is ready to serve.
