Special chocolate palpayasam


Chocolate palpayasam is extremely tasty and has the goodness of milk, chocolate and rice as well. Check out the pretty simple recipe of chocolate palpayasam.

Special chocolate palpayasam


½ cup unakkalari (rice with bran)

1 litre

½ cup + 1 ½ tbsp sugar

1 cup water

¼ tsp cardamom powder

1 tsp ghee

1 ½ tbsp chocolate (or as required)


Wash the bran rice well and soak for half an hour

Pressure cook the soaked rice with some water until 1 whistle

Open the cooker only after the pressure has been released completely

Into the cooked rice, add the ghee and sugar

Stir and cook on low flame

This helps the rice absorb the sweetness from the sugar. Besides, the rice wouldn't be overcooked

Pour the boiled milk after the rice has absorbed the sugar nicely

Do not forget to remove the layer of fat from the milk before pouring in

Stir continuously until the payasam begins to thicken up

Add the cardamom powder and 1-2 drops vanilla essence if required

Mix and stir well to thicken the payasam nicely

Turn off the flame when the payasam has the right consistency

Add the chocolate when the payasam cools down a bit

You could also add chocolate spread/syrup or coco powder

Add some more sugar if you are using coco powder

If the payasam is too thick, loosen it by adding some milk or boiled and cooled water

Enjoy the chocolate palpayasam.
