My first lengthy post after an year:-)
Time is moving is fast. It looks like I have just started my blogging journey but its an year now:-) After taking a break from IT industry for one year I always wanted to do something during my free time but kept passing my time with food network, browsing, chatting, cooking and of course eating. Things changed after my son was born. Though I became busy with him, I missed doing something for myself and that’s when hubby suggested to do blogging. My blogging journey started when my son was 6 months old. Being a lazy person, initially when I started writing I thought it won’t continue for a longtime, but continuous support from my close ones kept me motivated:-)
I am not a great cook, nor a great photographer, nor a great writer but my lovely reader and dear blog friends taught me those are not absolutely essential.
Thank u all for visiting, reading and commenting in my space.
Its traditionallymodernfood.com from now on 🙂 changing to .com was a big discussion for quiet sometime in our home. Ever since I started blogging hubby was insisting to change it but I kept postponing. At one stage he convinced me and I discussed about this with some of my good friends but somehow I felt will do it later. Today I got a pleasant blog Anniversary SPL gift from my Hubby 🙂 . Evening my hubby pinged me my blog URL in WhatsApp I was surprised to see .com instead of .wordpress.com. Have to work on importing the contents. May be when I do my next post it should be ready 🙂
Paruppu payasam is one of the most common payasam prepared during many festivals. The blend of protein rich lentils with jaggery (iron) and calcium (milk) is perfect for kids and Adults.
For the past couple of days I was in a dilemma thinking what to post for my blog anniversary. When I was browsing my pictures though Muffin, cake, cookie, creame brulee, burfi and laddu, this pulled my attention, I chose Paruppu Payasam as this my special favorite even before I tried/tasted any other desserts and sweet
Checkout my other payasam,
Moong dal – 1/3 cup
Channa dal – 2 tbsp
Milk – 2 cup
Water- 1 cup +3/4 cup
Jaggery – 3/4 cup
Grated coconut – 1/4 cup
Cardamom powder – 1/8 tsp
Turmeric Powder – pinch
Butter/ Ghee – 1 tsp
Cashew & Raisin – 2 tsp each
- Soak jaggery in 1 cup of luke warm water for 20 minutes (Time depends on the size of the cut jaggery). Strain to remove impurities
- Soak both the dals in luke warm water for 20 minutes
- Heat a tsp of ghee and saute cashew nuts till they are golden brown; switch off and add raisins. In the same pan dry roast both the soaked dals separately for a minute
- Pressure cook the dal with 3/4 cup of water for 2-3 whistles. Once the pressure subsides, open the cooker and mix the dal once
- In heavy bottomed pan add the jaggery syrup and cardamom powder and bring it boil. Add the cooked dal and continue cooking for 3-5minutes
- Add grated coconut and boiled milk. Cook for 2 minutes and switch off. Garnish with cashew and raisin,serve hot/ cold
- Turmeric powder is optional,I added to give yellow color to the Payasam
- Adjust milk according to the desired consistency
- Dal can be sauted for 2-3 minutes and cooked
- Edible camphor and saffron can be added for extra flavour
