How to make Payasam

First of all, we will soak moong dal and sago separately for 2 to 3 hours. Now turn on the gas and keep the moong dal on the stove to cook. On the other hand, now we will prepare jaggery syrup. The real taste of payasam is not found in sugar but in jaggery syrup. Before making jaggery syrup, wash it thoroughly so that if there is soil on it, it gets removed. Now turn on the gas and keep the pan on it. To make syrup, add 100 grams of jaggery in the pan. When the jaggery starts melting slightly, add 2 cups of water to it. Stir it well. When the syrup becomes a little thick and bubbles start appearing in it, then turn off the gas.

Now check the pulses once. When the lentils are cooked well, then mix it in jaggery syrup. Now turn on the gas again and mix them well and keep stirring it with a ladle for about 10 minutes. So that the lentils mix well in the syrup. After 5 minutes, add soaked sago and mix it well. Coconut milk is the most important ingredient in making this dish tasty. After all the ingredients are mixed well, add 250 grams of coconut milk in it. After adding coconut milk, keep stirring it with a ladle for about 15 minutes.

You are now at the end of this recipe. Pour ghee in a pan and roast the dry coconut cut into small pieces well. After coconut, add dry fruits like cashews, almonds and raisins and roast them.
