Paasi Paruppu Payasam ( Moong Daal Kheer for Tamizhar Samayal )

Today's recipe is an authentic payasam from Tamil Nadu and I am posting it for the new event which is starting from today .

 This event is started by nalini and is known as Tamizhar Samayal. We the members are going to post any dish from Tamil Nadu under this event on every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month.

So for today's post I have chosen this delicious payasam make with moong daal . This payasam is very yummy and rich and is usually made on auspicious and special occasions .






Ingredients :

1 cup..........................Moong daal ( Paasi Paruppu)
1 tbsp.........................rice
1/2 cup......................jaggery ( chopped in small pieces )
2 tbsp........................grated coconut
1 n 1/2 cup...............milk
few strands...............kesar
5 to 6 ......................cashewnuts ( fried in ghee till golden)
3 to 4 ......................cardamoms crushed
1 tbsp.....................ghee




Method :

Wash the moong daal and rice and cook them in a pressure cooker .

After 10 minutes or 3 whistles switch off the gas .

When pressure falls down remove the cooked rice and daal and mash it coarsely with a spoon.

Cook this in a non stick pan along with milk and jaggery.

When the payasam becomes thick add ghee, coconut , crushed cardamoms, cashew pieces and saffron.

Cook for further 5 to 10 mintues till you get a nice aroma.

If the payasam is too thick add little more milk.

Serve the payasam hot or cold as per your liking.
