Moong Dal Payasam | How to make Pasi Paruppu Payasam

Moong Dal Payasam

Moong Dal Payasam is a creamy milk sweet made with split yellow moong dal with jaggery. This is a popular Indian Sweet made during Festivals.

When I checked for Puddings under the Make these desserts, I had planned to pick up different ones, however as it was expected I didn’t have time and ended up making regular payasam and I was really surprised to check that I haven’t shared this regular sweet till date.

This payasam is referred as paruppu payasam or pasi paruppy payasam in Tamil and Pasara pappu Payasam in Telugu. This along besides the Chana Dal Payasam is Hubby Dear’s favorite dessert. He doesn’t like Semiya Payasam and a total no to the Kheer with rice. So we do end up alternating with either of these two dals.

I have already shared a Microwave Moong Dal Payasam, another version of Pesara Pappu Payasam. Chana Dal Payasam 

is yet another favorite. However you can check out the entire collection of 28 Payasam Recipes on C4AS and 14 Payasam Recipes on Spice your Life!

  1. Moong payasam looks yumm valli, I usually cook add jaggery and add milk finally, always scared to add jaggery to milk based kheers!! Love such quick payasams, easy to make during rush hours!!!

  2. Lovely. I am scared of making jaggery-milk combination of payasams but my mom says melted jaggery can be added to milk without any curdling issues. I must try this for sure. I use regular cane sugar for this payasam.

  3. We rarely make payasam with dal – don’t know why. But this dal payasam with moong dal looks so creamy and delicious. I wil have to try out some time.
