How to make Payasam

Always wanted to make payasam but never really got to it till today. Now after making and trying this spoonful of delight I regret waiting so long .. the super delicious desert that would go wrong only in dreams.

Here is what we need -

  • 1/2 cup moong daal
  • 1/2 cup jaggery
  • 2 cups coconut milk (canned - store bought)
  • 1 spoon cardamom powder

Whats Next -

Wash moong daal or I would say just a quick rinse. If you have a small pressure cooker roast daal in it for 3-4 minutes until it turns slight golden brown.

divide coconut milk into 2 - One portion make watery by adding 1 cup water in it. Add this to the pressure cooker to cook the daal. Give 2 whistles and lower the heat for 5 minutes. Switch off the stove.

Once it cools down, add jaggery to it. Switch on the stove and let the jaggery melt and give it a good mix.

Add remaining coconut milk to it. Add cardamom powder. Give it a good mix.

Take it out in the serving bowl and refrigerate it. wowwww supa!!
