Moong dal Payasam for Day 6 BM # 12

It the penultimate day of the Blogging Marathon. I'm completely satisfied with my run this time. I did full justice to my posts and fellow runners.

This was one of my new year's resolution, to be an active blogger , by posting regularly and visiting my fellow bloggers space. I think this marathon has helped me to initiate the act.

I had prepared Moong Dal Payasam yesterday for Neivedhiyam. It is a simple, healthy and delicious dish. It does not require much ingredients also.

So here goes the recipe for my moong dal payasam.

Ingredients :

Moong dal - 2 cups
Jaggery - 1 cup
Ghee - 2 tsps
Cashew and raisin - for decoration

Soak the moong dal for about 30 minutes
Pressure cook it for 3 whistles
Allow it to cool and then mash the dal
In the mean while prepare jaggery syrup and strain it
Add the jaggery syrup to the mashed dal
Heat a little ghee in another pan and roast the cashew and raisin
Add them to the payasam and let it mix well.
As an option you can either mix milk to this payasam and have or just have it like that.
You can also add fried coconut pieces to the payasam to make it rich

This Moong Dal Payasam is served at

Blogging Marathon, under the theme ‘Something Sweet’
Kid’s Delight : for this month’s theme ‘Something Sweet’
