Paruppu Payasam For Tamil New Year

Paruppu Payasam is an easy payasam recipe that is made with Moong Dal or Channa Dal. We make it with both the dals.

Preparation Time - 5 minutes

Cooking Time - 15 - 20 minutes

Serves : 4 people


Moong Dal/Pasi Paruppu - 3/4 cup
Channa Dal/Kadala Paruppu - 1/4 cup
Grated Jaggery - 1 cup
Milk - 1/2 cup
Ghee - 1 tsp
Cashews - 5 - 8 no
Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp


  • Thoroughly wash the dals until the water runs clear.
  • Chop the Cashews into halves.

  • To a heavy bottomed vessel add the moong dal, channa dal and 2 cups water and cook until the dals become mushy.
  • Meanwhile add the 1 tsp ghee to a small kadai. Add the Cashews and saute until they golden brown. Transfer to a dry plate.
  • When the dals are cooking, add the jaggery to a vessel and add 1/2 cup water and slightly warm it so that the jaggery gets dissolved.
  • When the dals are cooked use a ladle and slightly mush them.
  • Pour the jaggery into the dals through a filter to remove impurities.
  • Next add the milk, mix everything together and cook for 3 - 5 minutes in low flame.
  • Add the cardamom powder and fried cashews.
  • Mix everything together and serve warm or chilled as you prefer.

  • Whole Milk or 2% milk can be used.
  • You can also cook the dals in a pressure cooker. But make sure you do not overcook the dals.
  • Make sure you do not burn the dals. Mix at regular intervals and cook in medium low flame.
  • This payasam tastes good when served hot or cold.
  • You can also omit the milk and just use the jaggery water to get the consistency.
