Letz start the year with a sweet touch..

This payasam is one of my H's favourite one which his mom makes all the time.So this is a "must have" in our home for all special occasions.So decided to make just this for starting a sweet, happy year ahead...

Kadalai Paruppu Payasam


Kadalai paruppu/Channa dal - 1/2 cup
Milk - 2 cup
Jaggery - 1 cup (shredded)
Cardamom - 3
Cashew nut - 5
Sago - 2tbsp
Ghee - 1tbsp (for frying cashews)


Pressure cook kadalai paruppu with just enough water for abt 4 whistles.Switch off the heat and let the pressure go.Now open the cooker and mush down the paruppu very well.Add jaggery,cardamom and milk to it.Let it boil for abt 5 min.s and then add sago to it.Boil very well till sago cooks very well.Fry cashews in ghee and pour that into the payasam.

P.S: i had added little more jaggery than the mentioned amount, 'coz H likes it sweet.The amount of milk vary depends on how thick/thin you want the payasam to be.
