MOONG DHAL PAYASAM

This is popularly known as payathamparuppu payasam. This is offered to LORD OPPILIAPPAN on a Sravanam (Tiruvonam) day, when we dont eat salt in any form.

INGREDIENTS:

Moong dhal (yellow) - 1/4 cup
Milk - 1/2 litre
Jaggery - 1/2 cup
Ghee - 1 tablespoon
Cashews - 10
Cardamom - 2
Raw camphor (pachaikarpooram) - a pinch


METHOD:

Pressure cook moong dhal and mash well. Boil milk till it reduces to half. Dissolve jaggery in little water, strain the dust and allow it to boil till it diffuses its raw smell. Now add in the mashed dhal and milk. Bring it to a boil. Season it with fried cashews, powdered cardamom and pachaikarpooram. Offer it to the LORD.
