Moong Dal Kheer / Pesara pappu Payasam

I learnt this awesome kheer (Payasam) from one of my Tamilian friend. Once we had 'Lalita Sahastranaam' chanting at her place and she served this payasam as 'Prasad'. Though I am not sweet lover, I liked that taste of Jaggery in it. I ask the recipe and tried as one of the Prasad for Navratri Festival. And main thing in this kheer is no sugar, no deep frying and no ghee. I avoid use of fresh coconut which she suggested :-)

 
Ingredients

Moong Dal - 1 cup
Jaggery - 1 cup
Water - 3 cups
Milk - 1 cup
Cardamom Power - 1 teaspoon
Roasted cashew for Garnishing - 7-8
Grated Fresh coconut - 2-3 teaspoon (optional)


Procedure
Dry roast cashew in Microwave for 40 seconds. Dry roast moong dal till it slightly change to brown on low flame. Let it get cool. Now cook moong dal in 3 cups of water. It should not get overcooked. Dal should be in its shape. Now on other side in another vessel add 1 cup of water and jaggery and cook until jaggery completely dissolve in water. I have taken 1 cup jaggery, if you want sweeter taste you can add 1/4 cup more. Then add grated Fresh coconut and milk. On medium flame cook this for another 5 minutes. After this add cooked dal and mix well. Let it cook for one more minute. Add cardamom powder and mix well. Turn off the flame. Decorate it with cashews. Superb delicious and low fat Kheer/ Paysam is ready.
