Pasi paruppu payasam is well known festival payasam in South India. This is usually prepared during festivals like vinayagar chathurthi and tamil new year. I like this payasam a lot especially the payasam given in temples adding peanuts. I will post that version too soon.

  • Coconut grated – 1/4 cup

1. Wash and pressure cook moong dal adding water and milk for 3 whistles.

2. Once the pressure seizes, mash it well. Take jaggery in saucepan and add little water and boil until jaggery dissolves.

3. Filter the jaggery to remove impurities and pour into mashed dal.
