Parruppu payasam recipe | Moong dal payasam, recipe with full video and detailed step by step pictures.

Paruppu payasam is one of the traditional Tamil brahmin style payasam, made in our home during festival times. During our childhood days, only when we have guests amma makes milk based paaysam, that too mostly Semiya payasam. I never liked the jaggery based payasam during my childhood days. But after I got married somehow I slowly started liking the Jaggery based payasams more.

We make paruppu payasam with moong dal. In some houses they add little bit chana dal to enhance the creaminess of the payasam. My mom adds a little bit of chana dal also in this moong dal payasam.

We make Moong dal payasam for Ganesh chaturti, Tamil new year, Varalakshmi nombu, Janmastami, Karthigai deepam and also during small poojas performed at home.

I have shared this recipe in Jeyashris kitchen many years ago. This updated with full video.

2. If doing so, take a thick extract of coconut milk of 1/2 cup and add to the Paruppu payasam, after switching off the flame.
3. You can add some more milk if the consistency of the paruppu payasam is too thick.
4. Do not hot milk to the payasam, it will curdle.
5. Also when the jaggery paruppu mixture is hot, do not add milk.
6. Paruppu payasam tastes nice when chilled.
