Moong dhal / Payatham paruppu payasam is a sweet dessert.
Generally on the days of fast my mom makes this dish for naivedyam and its
distributed to all members of family as a Prasad. Today being a Sivarathri I am
posting this recipe.

Water – 1 ½ cup
Milk – 1 ½ cup
Jaggery – 1 cup (you can add more if you want it to be sweet)
Cardomom – 3
Ghee – 1 tsp
Cashew, dry grapes – few
milk and bring it to room temperature.
Powder the jaggery, mix it with
little water and stir it continuously in low flame until it turns to a syrup
like state. Filter the jaggery to remove any
kind of impurities
Dry roast the moong dhal till golden brown.
Boil the roasted moong dhal with water till becomes mushy.
Add jaggery with the moong
dhal and continue to cook
When it becomes
