Wishing all my readers a very happy new year with a sweet note. Payatham paruppu payasam is generally cooked on a festival and I have cooked this to celebrate the beginning of yet another lovely year ahead of us. Let us all make resolutions to be happy, to stay healthy and fit and do our bit to save mother earth
The main ingredient of this payasam is payatham paruppu or moong dal. This is cooked well, mashed slightly that cooked in the jaggery syrup and finally milk is added to it.
This week of the Foodie monday blog hop had the theme as New year special-state wise and hence this payasam
Cook the green gram dal in enough water, mash well
To this add the grated jaggery and continue to cook on low flame till it comes together
Now add the cardamom powder, mix well and cook for 1 minute and switch off the fire
Add the milk and mix well. Add more milk to get the required consistency
Heat the ghee in a small pan and when sufficiently hot, add the nuts, saute till they just begin to brown and add it the prepared payasam.
