Pachai Payaru Javvarisi Payasam Recipe | Green Gram Sago Kheer | Paasipayaru Payasam | Moong Bean Payasam | Payasam Recipes

When I was asked to prepare some green gram recipes for an event, I made this Payasam along with the other green gram recipes that I posted earlier. Initially, I was planning to make this payasam with Karupatti (Palm Jaggery). However, I ran out of karupatti at that time and hence I made it with normal Jaggery. Green Gram and Karupatti are very nutritious and I suggest you make this payasam with karupatti. Unlike other lentils, the green gram doesn't upset the stomach and it has a lot of nutrients. Do give it a try and let me know the results. Also, check out my other green recipes too: Green Gram Ladoo, Green Gram Suzhiyam, Green Gram Poli, Green Gram sweet sundal, Puttu Payaru Pappadum and Green Gram Thoran.
Green Gram(Moong Dal/Paasipayaru) - 1 Cup
Sago/Javvarisi - 1/4 Cup 
Jaggery - 3/4 Cup 
Ghee - 1 tsp 
Thin Coconut Milk - 1.5 Cups 
Thick Coconut Milk - 1/4 Cup 
Cashew Nuts - 10 
Raisins - 10 
Cardamom Powder - 1/4 tsp
1. Dry roast the green gram until nice aroma comes. Then along with this add the Sago/Javvarisi and roast it for two minutes. Pressure cook the roasted green gram and sago with the thin coconut milk for 3 to 4 whistles.
2. Dissolve the jaggery in 1/4 cup of water and filter the impurities. When the pressure releases, add the jaggery solution and bring it to boil.(I transferred it to a wide pan). Add the cardamom powder at this stage.
3. When the payasam thickens, reduce the flame to low and add the thick coconut milk. Keep stirring, else the coconut milk will curdle. Roast the cashew nuts and raisins in ghee and pour it to the payasam. Switch off the payasam.
Serve the yummy payasam either warm or chilled. Payasam with banana and appalam is a pure bliss.
Points to remember:
  • For the healthier option, replace the jaggery with Karupatti(palm sugar). 
  • Also, you can add dry ginger(chukku) podi along with cardamom powder.
  • If you prefer mild payasam rather than the rich one, then you can skip the coconut milk and cook the moong dal in water.
Warm Regards,
