Pasta Parippu Payasam / Kheer (Multi grain pasta in desi sweet version)

We usually prepare any pasta in a noodle version with sauces,but how about a sweet version??My younger one is a fan of sweet items and so anything healthy has to be sweet too..Thats how I ended up trying out this yummy payasam.Check this out with any pastas,I think it will be good.Jaggery in coconut sauces and fibre rich pasta n moong dal,Isn't it interesting?We have a similar version in kerala using ada(rice flour)-ada pradhaman.It almost tastes the same way.My photo clicks have not been satisfactory as the jaggery I had was the milder version.The jaggery should be dark brown in colour or what we call karipetti(palm jaggery).This is a very healthy food for kids and I think you can try out replacing coconut milk with whole milk.The taste with whole milk may be slightly milder but other wise it will be good.





Ingredients
Pasta  1/2 packet
split moong dal 1 cup
jaggery 1 cup (or as per taste)
coconut milk thin 1  1/2 cup
thick coconut milk 1 cup
cardamom powder 1 tsp
dry ginger powder / chukku podi 1/2 tsp
raisins 1/3 cup
cashews 1/3 cup
ghee 6 tsp



Method
  • Cook the pasta as per packet instructions .(I used the butterfly multi grain pasta),Drain water and keep aside.
  • Wash the moong dal and keep aside.
  • Place a pan on medium heat ,fry the raisins and cashews ,keep aside.
  • Add the parippu /split moong dal and fry for 2 minutes.
  • Add the thin coconut milk and cook the dal for 10 minutes.
  • In the meantime,dissolve the jaggery in a cup of warm water and strain impurities.
  • Add this jaggery to the boiling dal.
  • Cook covered for 10 minutes.
  • Add the cooked pasta to it and cook again for 15 minutes.
  • The payasam starts to thicken ,add half of the fried cashews and raisins.
  • Add the cardamom powder, dry ginger powder,adjust sweetness.
  • Lower the flame and add the thick coconut milk ,heat it and put off the flame.
  • Garnish with leftover cashews and raisins.
Servings 4 adults

TIPS
-Donot boil the payasam once the thick milk is added,it may curdle.
-You can pressure cook the moong dal if you want a much thicker consistency,we like to bite the cooked dal in between;so i have not mashed it.

Krishna said... Best Blogger Tips

Just stumbled upon this :) superb idea.. Can it be made with only pasta, like an Ada payasam?

Julie said... Best Blogger Tips

Yes, it can be made with only pasta like Ada pradhaman.. The only concern was the pradhaman has the consistency only from coconut milk and jaggery so to add texture to the pradhaman, I added moongdal..pasta doesn't disintegrate in pradhaman like rice ada though tastes similar to ada.
