Choco-Aval payasam/ Chocolate Beaten Rice payasam

Beaten rice/aval/poha-1/2 cup(I used matta aval)
Whole milk-3 cups
sugar -1-1/2 cup
Semi sweet baking Chocolate-1oz(1 square)(melted)
cashew nuts to garnish
Almonds(sliced) to garnish
ghee -2 tbsp

Method Of Preparation:
1. In a pan,heat the ghee and fry the cashews . To that add the beaten rice and fry for 3 minutes approx.
2. Add milk to that along with sugar and bring to boil.
3. Add semi sweet chocolate(melted) to milk.Cook it till the beaten rice becomes soft. Stir it continuously.
4. Once milk starts to evaporate /thickened add cardamom powder and fried cashews and sliced almonds. Take from heat.
3. Serve warm or cold.

1. You can use normal milk 2 cups with half cup condensed milk.If so adjust sugar according to that.
2. I have used matta aval/beaten rice(aval made from matta rice/red rice).So it takes some time to become soft.If using white aval it gets cooked fast.
3. To melt chocolate keep it in a vessel over boiling water.Otherwise chocolate burns easily.
4. Use the amount of chocolate according to your taste buds. If you like less chocolate flavour go for half a square.
