Pasi paruppu / Moong dal (split and without cover) – 200 gm
Jaggerry – 300 gm (as per taste)
Coconut milk – 300 ml
Cashew nut – 25gm
Khishmish – 10gm
Step 1: Keep ready shredded jaggery, coconut milk and golden fried cashew nut and khishmish.
Step 2: Slightly roast moong dal (pasai paruppu) in a pan.
Step 3: Add a half table spoon of oil or ghee and roast it for few minutes. This avoids sabudana from getting t sticky and get dissolved while cooking.
Step 4: Pressure cook moong dal and sabudana along with 3 cups of water. Wait till one whistle and keep it in low flame for 5-7 minutes.
Step 5: Once cooked it, open the cooker lid.
Step 6: Add jaggery and coconut milk now and stir well.
