Hesaru bele (moong dal) Payasa

Payasa/payasam is another name for kheer.. but here I have used only coconut milk not cow’s milk.

  1. Take out your trusty old pressure cooker.
  2. In it roast a TBS or two of cashews and raisins in ghee.
  3. (I prefer golden raisin, but didn’t have any on hand)
  4. Remove from the pan and keep aside.
  5. Also in the cooker add 1/2c split moong dal – roast in ghee until it smells good.
  6. Add 1.5c water and pressure cook 2-3 whistles.
  7. While that is cooking, Boil 1/2c jaggery in 1/2c water till melted. Remove the foam, and strain if necessary.
  8. Mash the dal.
  9. To the dal add jaggery syrup and 1c coconut milk (I used canned Thai brand organic)
  10. Add 1t cardamom powder.
  11. Bring back to a boil for a few minutes till the flavors combine and it slightly thickens.
  12. Stir in the dried fruits and nuts.
  13. Serve hot/warm.
