Saaka Vratha Hesarbele Payasa | Paasi paruppu payasam | Moong dal kheer

It is no big deal to cook without vegetables, fruits and use only lentils - that is what I learnt when mom told me about the food preparation during the Saaka Vratha. Even though we do not observe these fasts, here is a tasty and healthy kheer that can be had on all days....

I used:

Moon dal - 1/2 cup
Jaggery - less than 1/4 cup
Milk 2-3 cups

  1. Pressure cook moongdal with enough water and lightly mash it while still warm.
  2. Heat a pan and add jaggery and a little water [less than 1/4 cup]. When it starts melting, add the moong dal and milk.Stir to mix.
  3. When it comes to a rolling boil, remove from heat
  4. Serve warm.


    Bon Appetit...
