Arasi Paruppu Payasam | Happy Gokulashtami/Krishna Janmashtami!!!

Payasam is a mix of Rice, Jaggery and choice of Dal. Here I have used Channa Dal/Kadalai Paruppu, its very aromatic and tasty. I have posted few payasam varieties here. I prepared this for Avani Avittam Festival on Saturday.

It was perfect and everyone liked at my home. This recipe was taught by my Mother in Law, Thanks a lot.

Wish you all a very Happy Gokulashtami!!!

Here goes the recipe.

Rice - 1/2 cup(I used Ponni)
Channa Dal/Kadalai Paruppu - 2 tspns
Vellam/Jaggery - 1.5 cups(powdered or broken)
Fresh grated coconut - 1/2 cup + Rice - 1/2 tspn(for grinding)
Elachi powder - 1/4 tspn
Milk - 1 glass
Ghee - 1 tspn
Cashews/Raisins - 2 tspns

Preparation Method
Wash, rinse rice and channa dal. Pressure cook upto 3 whistles with water.
In a vessel, add vellam/jaggery with 1/2 cup water and allow it to dissolve. If required add more water, once its fully dissolved, filter it and again start boiling in low flame on occasional stirring till the raw smell of Jaggery goes.
Grind the coconut and rice with little water to fine paste.
Once the pressure is gone, take the rice and dal mix and mash it with a laddle/karandi.
Add the rice, dal mix to the jaggery, coconut paste and mix well.
Finally add milk and boil well. It should be to medium consistency. off the stove

Heat ghee in a pan, add cashews and raisins. Fry till brown and add to the payasam.

Delicious Payasam is ready for Neivedyam and Enjoy it warm or chill!!!

Once again wish Happy Gokulashtami to all friends celebrating the festival.

Until my next post. Happy Weekend.
