Payasam / Pradhaman / Kheer? Don‚Äôt ask me how much I love them. ūüôā Very often I make¬†them at home. I have to admit that, among the¬†different kheer preparations I have some special love to Parippu pradhaman / Kadala parippu payasam. But I don‚Äôt know why its so, it was always like¬†so since my childhood.

Here I’m sharing my recipe for parippu payasam preparation. Have a look friends..

Kadala parippu payasam making

  1. Wash and drain the kadala parippu (Split Chana dal / Bengal gram / Split Chick pea) well.
  2. In a fry pan / cheenachatti, boil two tablespoons of ghee and add the Kismis (raisins),  Cashew nuts and coconut pieces. Slightly fry them and keep aside.
  3. Pressure cook the dal with a pinch of salt (use only a pinch of salt for taste) and the dried ginger (chukku) for upto 2 whistles.
  4. Boil the jaggery with enough water. When it starts boiling, remove from the stove and drain the jaggery syrup to remove any impurities.
  5. Open the pressure cooker, and add the cardamoms pods (crushed), nutmeg powder and jaggery syrup to the cooker and let it boil for 20 minutes. Keep stirring, so that it should not stick to the bottom of the cooker.
  6. After 10 minutes add the sago to the cooker and mix.
  7. Add the first / thick coconut milk and keep stirring continously, without boiling the coconut milk.
  8. Mix the fried cashews, raisins and conconut pieces with the parippu payasam.
  9. When it reaches semi consistency remove from the stove.
  10. Serve hot or chilled.
