  3. In hot water, immerse powdered jaggery and crush it well, filter to remove impurities and keep it ready. Now take a wide bottomed pan(I used a nonstick pan) add cooked moong daal, then add filtered jaggery syrup and milk. Let it cook for 3-5mins.

My Notes:

  • After coconut milk is added dont let it boil for more time it will start to curdle.
  • Dry roasting moong dal gives a nice flavour.
  • You can skip milk and make it fully with coconut milk itself.
  • Adjust sweetness according to your taste.

    1. It is coarse dark sugar we get here in india for making many traditional sweets/desserts.You can check here for more info :

  24. I add half cup of javarisi along with moong dal.It makes the payasam thicker and tastier.Give a try

  25. Payasam and kheer, is there not any difference, can payasam be called kheer? Kheer is ubiquitous and while payasam is typically south indian , ofcourse now cannot be boxed

  26. Its awesome I tried ds receipe..!!
