MUNG BEAN PAYASAM

Photobucket

Easy and healthy dessert you can whip up for the whole family to enjoy.  Using mung bean  and milk as its ingredient. There are various way to prepare this dessert but I soaked the bean for an hour to speed up the cooking process.

Quantity of sugar can be adjusted to your taste, if you prefer it sweeter add more sugar.

MUNG BEAN PAYASAM

150g mung bean soaked 1 hour
3/4 C palm sugar or to taste
1 1/2 C milk
1 1/2 C water
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
2 T ghee
2 T raisin
6 cashew

METHOD

 *  Place mung bean in a deep pot, boil until soft.

*   In a separate pot, boil water and sugar, strain.

*  Now add sugar syrup and milk to the mung bean, bring to boil again. Add in cardamom powder.

* Heat ghee, fry cashew and raisin then pour this into mung bean pot. Stir well.

* Ready to serve.

Yet again you got me with more ingredients I've never heard of. Looks like a trip to Whole Foods or my local Health Food or Asian market is in store as this also sounds wonderful. Thanks for the education!
