Wash broken matta rice in water, thoroughly. Cook it in a pressure cooker with milk, sugar and cardamom for atleast 30 minutes in a low flame. Once the rice is properly cooked, we can add some hot milk to it to adjust the consistency, if needed. Condensed milk (optional) can be added for some extra richness. Add a small pinch of salt to enhance the taste of the payasam. Heat a couple of tablespoons of ghee in a tadka pan. Roast raisins and cashews, and pour it to the payasam.
