Moongdal payasam, mangalore style

Moongdal payasam is a tasty sweet which has a cooling effect on the body. Thus, with summer at its peak, you can enjoy this delicacy. Moreover, with Ugadi round the corner, it may be in the wish list.

Each  state have adapted their own method of cooking. The North  Karnataka  recipe I had written long time back. You can check it here.Today, I am presenting to you Mangalorean style or Udupi style ( South Canara) style of this payasam.

Coconut milk is used here. I have grinded cashews with a little coconut and mixed it.  Thus it is both vegan and gluten free food.

With Ugadi approaching, I am planning to write a few good posts and finally make a collection of recipes too from bloggers for you. Please do keep watching this space.
