Anu's Kitchen Kheer or Payasam

Payatham paruppu payasam | Moong Dal Kheer

My mom often prepares Payatham paruppu (aka pasi paruppu) payasam. I love this kheer and I have this as a side dish for chapattis 😀 Heard Moong dal kheer is very famous in Kerala! Here is my version of Payatham paruppu payasam.

Payatham paruppu payasam | Moong Dal Kheer


Payatham paruppu (Moong Dal): 1 cup
Jaggery: 1 cup
Milk: 1 cup
Cardamom powder: a pinch
Cashews and Raisins: few
Ghee: 2 tsps

Preparation Method:

  • Shallow fry the dal for few mins till it turns slight brownish in color.
  • Pressure cook the dal.
  • Boil the milk and add the jaggery.
  • Keep stirring till the jaggery completely dissolves.
  • Now add the cardamom powder and the cooked dal.
  • Allow it to cook for 2-3 mins and remove it from the stove.
  • Heat ghee and fry the cashews and raisins.
  • Add it to the kheer.
  • Serve the kheer hot or cold.


  • Frying the dal is not mandatory. You can also start from step 2.
  • I have prepared the kheer with and without frying the dal, either way the payatham paruppu payasam tastes yummy 🙂

Thanks for the receipr.It is very simple to try but but one question , when the milk & jaggery is mixed the milk turns sour. what is solution to avoid it?


Thanks for stopping by 🙂

I usually boil the milk well, simmer the stove and add the jaggery. Powder jaggery before adding. Am sure jaggery with milk should taste gud…

Mmmm… sour taste could be due to the jaggery that u had used! I use pale yellow ones available in desi stores.
