In a pressure cooker add the washed rice and 4 cups water.
Pressure cook for 4 whistles.
Let the pressure release. Meanwhile melt the jaggery in ½ cupwater and strain to remove the impurities.
Open the pressure cooker, switch on the flame and add the melted jaggery to it.
When it boils low the flame and add salt. Let it be there in low flame for about10-20 minutes.
Dilute the coconut milk powder in ¾ cup water, stir without lumps and add in this to the payassam.
