Tips for Cooking
The initial soaking of the akki tari is also to wash it, the amount of water in the recipe is to boil the akki tari later on.
If you wish, you can boil the akki tari directly in milk itself, in this case, double the amount of milk and replace the water with 500 ml of milk in step 2
If you are using dry fruits, roast them separately in a little amount of ghee and add it towards the end.
If using Mastercook elaichi, add it when you add the sugar into the payasa.
