Kadalai Parrupu Payasam


This is the last post for this weeks BM, Lets end with a dessert. Kadalai Parrupu payasam is one of the traditional payasam in Tamil Nadu. This is bit different than regular payasam it will be chewier; the grated coconut will be good for muching. This is my mom’s recipe.

Ingredients:


Split chana dal (Kadalai parrupu)
½ cup
Raw rice
¼ cup
Jaggery
¾ cup
Cardamom powder
¼ tsp
Cashew nut chopped
1 Tbsp
Ghee
2 tsp
Coconut grated
2 Tbsp
 
 
 
 

 

Directions:


  1. Pressure cook chana dal and rice together with 3 cups of water for 3 whistles (Chana dal will be slightly overcooked and rice should be mushy).
  2. Add little water to jaggery and heat until it dissolves, filter the syrup to cooked chana dal mixture and cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Mean while heat ghee and roast cashew nut. Finally add grated coconut, cashew nut and cinnamon powder and cook for another 2 minutes.
  4. Turn off the stove and enjoy warm.
Note:
You can add coconut milk after adding jaggery its optional.

This is a very popular paysam in south India. I love this paysam & my mom adds in coconut milk in it to make it rich. You idea of adding grated coconut is great!
