Moong dal is used for various purposes in our daily cooking. From salads and dals to desserts, it finds its place in some form or the other. Today, I present a traditional  Indian sweet dish. Payasa is a sweet preparation usually  of medium consistency, which are made of numerous kinds.

Moong dal, which is obtained from yellow split lentil, is a rich source of protein and has cooling properties.With summer fast approaching,one can prepare this dish. It is a preparation which can be used along with the food or as a dessert.

  • jaggery grated 1 cup
  • milk 1/2 cup

    That sounds good, but my partner can’t eat nuts. Would it work without the cashews?

    Such a flavourful payasa made with moong dal. I tasted it for the first at the Bangalore ISKCON. Love how jaggery adds an earthy taste to it.
