Hot Nariyal Machchi
White Fish in a Coconut Sauce
This is a luxurious, creamy rice pudding with a South Indian kiss. There are may iterations of this type of pudding across India but the basics remain the same which are milk and sugar. Sometimes the rice is replaced with vermicelli noodles, sometimes nuts and raisin are added and sometimes it's spiced with dessert spices.
In the north we call it Kheer and it's cooked with milk or condensed milk. In the south it's Paysam and the milk is substituted for coconut milk.
Whichever version you cook the key flavouring tends to be cardamom and this lovely coconut rice pudding dish is finished with cashews, pistachios and raisins. A wonderfully simple dessert which is truly Indian.
