My husband likes inviting his relatives to home frequently. And this time he informed me just half an hour before. Menu ideas started overflowing & finally I decided to make ghee rice, kuruma & this delicious moong dal payasam. It never took me more than one hour for my whole preparation yet it tasted great. Moong dal can be substituted with channa dal or combination of both. Addition of condensed milk will makes this dessert more tasty :)
- Moong dal - 1/2 cup
- Water - 1 cup plus 1 tbsp
- Jaggery - 1/2 cup
- Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
- Nut meg powder - 1/4 tsp
- Nuts (Cashewnuts, almonds, raisins) - 1/4 cup
- Milk -1/2 cup (depending upon the desired thickness)
Directions to cook :
# Cook the moong dal in water. Keep aside.
# Dissolve the jaggery in a tsp of water & filter it. Keep aside.
# Heat the pan, add the jaggery & allow it to boil on a lower flame.
# Add the moong dal & milk. Allow it to boil. (adjust the quantity of milk based on the consistency you are looking for)
# Add the cardamom powder, nut meg powder & fried nuts.
