Dal Payasam | Kadala Parippu Payasam
Dal Payasam or Kadala Parippu Payasam is a payasam from Kerala made with chaana dal and coconut milk and is perfect for your Onam Sadya!
- 1/2 cup channa dal
- 1 cup jaggery grated
- 4 cups coconut milk
- 1 tsp cardamom powder
- pinch ginger powder
- 2 tsps ghee
- 20 - 25 cashew
- handful raisins
Soak channa dal in water for 2 hours. Rinse and boil in a pressure cooker along with 2-3 cups of water. We want it just boiled and not too mushy.
When it is cool, add melted jaggery and bring to a boil. Simmer for about 5 minutes.
Add coconut milk and simmer till the pyasam is little thick.
In a small tadka pan, heat ghee and roast cashew and raisin till brown. (if you are making a vegan version, roast the nuts in coconut oil)
Pour it in the paysaam and serve warm or cold.
