to be honest i am not a huge fan of paysam recipes and i like milk-based dessert or kheer recipes. i started to dislike payasam as it was one of the common dessert recipes made often for most of our festival and occasion feast. it is very common to have paysam in my hometown and also in all south indian states. having said that, after moving to australia, it has become less often and less frequent. hence i guess i have started developing a taste to these nostalgic recipes. more importantly, i have started to like the chana dal payasam recipe which offers the combination of coconut milk, jaggery and sabudana (sago). i assume it should also develop the taste buds for you all.

furthermore, i would like to add some more tips, suggestions and variations for chana dal payasam recipe. firstly, the main reason i have added sabudana or sabakki is to increase the consistency of the payasam. having said that it is not mandatory to use it and can be skipped if you do not wish to. secondly, the consistency is the key for this recipe and it has to be neither thick or thin. hence follow the proportions as highlighted below in the recipe card. lastly, you can experiment with as much as dry fruits you wish to. i have added only cashews, almonds and raisins, but you can add walnuts, pistachios and even macadamia nuts.

notes:

  • firstly, make sure to add sabudana as it helps to give a creamy consistency. chana dal alone will not able to hold texture.
  • also, if you do not have jaggery then replace jaggery with sugar.
  • additionally, add coconut milk will enhance the flavour of payasam.
  • finally, chana dal payasam recipe can also be flavoured with cardamom powder.
