Payatham Paruppu Payasam

                                                                           Payatham Paruppu or Paasi Paruppu payasam(yellow Moong dal) is the easiest paruppu payasam to make.Today being Friday of Tamil Aadi Masam I made this Payasam. My daughter loves payasam with Jaggery.This payasam is made in most of the festivals at home.It is also called "Payatham Kanji"and made on fasting days especially on sivarathri.(while  making payatham kanji ususally they do not add cardamom powder)
I have added milk to this payasam you can either add milk or coconut milk to it.If you are adding coconut milk do not heat it too much after adding the coconut milk.

You will Need

  • 3/4 cup Moong dal
  • One cup Jaggery
  • Half a cup Milk
  • Few Cashew nuts
  • One tsp Ghee
  • Pinch of Cardamom Powder

How to
  • Roast the dal till a nice aroma comes.Do not let it brown.

  •  Wash the dal and pressure cook with two cups of water.

  •  Mash the cooked dal(remove excess water if any before mashing)

  •  Add the powdered jaggery and heat further.

  •  Once the jaggery dissolves add boiled and cooled milk and cardamom powder.

  •  Roast the cashew nuts in a tsp of ghee in a small pan and pour in the payasam.


  • You can add some raisins along with some cashew nuts.
  • You can add some edible camphor for extra flavor.
  • You can dissolve the jaggery in hot water filter for impurities and then use.
