Wishing All My friends,Readers,blogger friends and Dear Ones A Very Happy Pongal !!



For this Pongal I made this Payasam as naivedyam for god.

This is simple, wonderful sweet which can be prepared easily on special occasions and whenever you want to have some sweet.

My mom used to make this payasam quiet regularly for us. Channa & moong dal Payasam is prepared with channa and moong dal paste added to milk and jaggery syrup. Adding Coconut and milk gave a yummy flavor. It can be enjoyed either hot or cold.

Milk - 1 1/4 cup
Cardamom powder - 1 tsp
Cashews - 8 no
Raisins - 8 no
Coconut pieces ( small) - 3 tsps
Ghee - 3 tsps




Preparation

  • Take Chana dal and moong dal with 1 tsp of ghee in a pan and fry till the raw smell of dal goes away.
  • Pressure Cook the fried moong and channa dal with 1 1/2 cups of water.
  • Allow the steam to escape, remove the lid and keep the cooked dal aside.
  • Meanwhile fry cashews,raisins,coconut pieces with 1 tsp of ghee and keep aside.
  • Boil milk in microwave for 1-2 minutes.
