Arisi paruppu payasam prepared with moong dal, raw rice, jaggery, coconut and cashew nuts. This payasam is easy to make with simple and healthy ingredients. You won’t go wrong with this payasam and it is perfect for family get together or for any festivals. Arisi paruppu payasam is one main recipe made during festive occasions by my mom and also every Friday on Tamil month Aadi and Thai. It tastes divinely making perfect for celebrations. Arisi paruppu payasam is made using raw rice, moong dal some people add chana dal also. We add dal in a very small quantity, just to give a creamy texture. We are adding jaggery to this payasam for sweetness. Alternatively, you can add brown sugar or nattu sakkarai too. This payasam tastes similar to sakkarai pongal but the consistent is differ. The addition of coconut milk gives a very nice taste and flavor to this but here I’m not using because this is a very easy version of it. Arisi Paruppu Payasam is a good alternate to the regular Paruppu payasam to make on special occasions. For another variation of rice payasam use condensed milk or palm jaggery. In addition to enrich this payasam we can make many alterations like adding saffron, resins, ghee roasted coconut shreds. Finally, the combinations are giving delicious taste.
