Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 50 min
Yields: Serves 10


Green gram dal125gms

Jaggery 125gms

Coconut milk from 1 coconut

Ghee 2 tbsps

Cashew nuts 10 -15 gms

Raisins 10-15gms


Dry fry the dal/pulse in medium flame for 5-10 mins. Allow it to cool. Wash, drain and boil the fried dal well in water. Melt jaggery using little water, strain and boil to a thick solution. Extract milk from the coconut twice. First without adding water and later by adding adequate amount of water. Keep the thick milk taken first, aside. Add the second milk and the jaggery solution to the cooked dal. Simmer on medium flame till thick. Roast the cashew nuts and raisins in ghee separately. Add these and the first milk to the payasam. Mix well and remove from fire. Serve hot.


If you do not get fresh coconut to extract the milk, can use the coconut milk available in the market. In that case, add more water while cooking the dal and add the milk towards the end. You can also add roasted coconut slices (small) instead of cashews for seasoning. Can try eating it with slices of small ripe bananas and crushed papads.

      Yes, Jaggery can be added instead of sugar, but in that case, you have to use coconut milk instead of plain milk.

      This is my favorite payasam. I had gone through your hub about pal payasam, can jaggery be added instead of sugar in pal payasam? Thanks for sharing these recipe hubs. Rated up and interesting.
