THENGAI PAAL PAYASAM

Aadi paal | Thengai paal payasam – Easy to make coconut milk payasam – Aadi paal recipe with full video and step by step pictures.

Aadi paal | thenga paal payasam is a traditional payasam recipe made during the first day of the Tamil month aadi. Apart from this we can make this for Navaratri neivedyam too. Homemade coconut milk gives an excellent flavor and taste to the payasam. This is a vegan recipe too as we are not adding any milk in this payasam.

Coconut milk and jaggery are the main ingredients of this payasam. Cardamom powder and Ghee roasted cashew nuts enhances the taste. I posted this recipe in Jeyashri’s kitchen few years ago and now it is updated with full video.
