Quick Dhall Payasam

It was a lazy Sunday evening that I wanted to have something sweet and there was nothing sweet ready to eat with me. I was wondering what could I make easily. Finally the idea of making a payasam stuck my mind as I had coconut shredded always stocked up in my freezer. I made this in 15 minutes and most of the time was cooking, not much to do. Hope you will like it too just as I did.


Thoor Dhall- 1 cup
Coconut milk- 4 cups
Elachi powder- 1 tsp
Sugar-2.5 cups
Ghee half cup
Salt- a pinch

Points to be Noted:
  • Dhall should be well cooked and mashed for a tasty payasam.
  • If you dhall is cooked but not mushy, cool it down and run through the mixture grinder. Its ok if it becomes a paste.
  • Instead of adding fried coconut pieces you can add fried cashews and dry grapes too.
