Happy belated Ponggal and Happy Chinese New Year!
It has been a week we celebrated Ponggal and i just got time to post this. I have posted Ponggal recipe as my first post in this blog. So i decided to post items which i cooked on this Ponggal Day! Mung Dal Payasam is one of my favorite since young. Ponggal not complete without payasam for me.
1 cup Mung dal (pacchai payaru)
1/2 cup Sago Pearls
3 cup Water
1/2 cup Jaggery
3 tbsp White sugar
pinch of salt
1 cup Coconut cream
1 tbsp Ghee
1 tbsp Cashew nuts
Soak the dal in water for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile roast cashews and vermicelli with 1 tsp ghee
Cook the dal for 30 minutes or less if use pressure cooker. Make sure the water is enough.
Add in cleaned sago pearls into cooked mung dal. Let it boil together.
Cook till the sago turned transparent.
Add in jaggery, sugar, ghee, vermicelli and coconut cream.
Finally garnish with cashews.
I had cooked sumptuous vegetarian meal served with banana leaf on this day. Here are my few snapshots. I will soon update the other recipes.
