Pasi paruppu paysam recipe also known as moong dal payasam recipe (moong dal kheer recipe) or cherupayar payasam recipe in India is a very easy lentil dessert recipe (easy lentil pudding dessert recipe) which you can make in very little time. This is one of the most yummy and quick dessert recipes which you can prepare so easily. There are different versions available for this pasi paruppu payasam recipe but the main ingredient used won’t change with recipes. The main ingredient used for pasi paruppu payasam recipe is pasi paruppu or moong dal or cherupayar parippu. This is the yellow colored split dal (the skin of which is removed from the whole green mung beans).
This is a sweet Indian dessert made of lentils which is often made during festivals or as a simple & easy dessert for dinner on weekends or weekdays.
As I mentioned above there are different ways you can make this yummy pasi paruppu payasam recipe. My recipe for pasi paruppu paysam uses coconut milk and sugar and this is a one pot payasam recipe which is made using a pressure cooker. This is super easy to make as you can just make it in a pressure cooker. I didn’t use the fried raisins or cashews to garnish the dish since this is a one pot payasam recipe, but you can always fry the raisins and cashews in little ghee and garnish your paysam or kheer (Indian pudding) once you have prepared the dessert.
I used coconut milk and sugar to make this easy dessert, but you may also use jaggery or coconut palm sugar instead of white sugar. If you use jaggery, make sure you melt the jaggery in little water and filter it using a strainer to remove any residues in jaggery. If you are are using jaggery dissolved in water to sweeten the dessert, you don’t have to use the extra water mentioned in the recipe since the jaggery solution already has the enough water.
You may also use regular whole milk if you don’t have coconut milk.
So here is how you can easily prepare this super easy lentil dessert pudding following this pasi paruppu payasam recipe (cherupayar payasam recipe or moong dal payasam recipe).
Ingredients for pasi paruppu payasam recipe
pasi paruppu (moong dal) 1 cup

Sugar 1 cup
Ghee 2 tablespoons
saffron strands 4 to 5 (optional)
cardamom powder a pinch (or 1 cardamom clove)
Instructions for pasi paruppu paysam recipe – one pot payasam recipe in pressure cooker – easy lentil dessert pressure cooker recipe
Dry roast the pasi paruppu or moong dal in pressure cooker (without closing the cooker) for about 4 to 5 minutes or until the raw smell goes away. Make sure you keep stirring so that the lentils don’t get burnt at the bottom. While dry roasting you can use low heat. The color of the lentils shouldn’t change, it should stay yellow.
Once the lentils are dry roasted well, add the ghee and roast for another 2 minutes, while you keep stirring.
Add the sugar, water and 1/2 cup of coconut milk and mix the ingredients well.
Close the pressure cooker with the lid (make sure you put the safety valve and follow the instructions in the manual as they are very important for your safety while using the pressure cooker).
Cook in medium heat for about 10 minute or until 2 whistles come.
Allow the pressure cooker to cool down.
Meanwhile you can dissolve the saffron strands in a little coconut milk (2 to 3 tablespoons of coconut milk is enough for this).
Once the pressure cooker is cooled, you can open the cooker and see if the lentils are cooked well and soft enough in texture. If needed, you can add little more water or coconut milk if you prefer more liquid like consistency.
Now gently mash the cooked lentils using a spoon or laddle which will make it more perfect for pudding like texture.
Add the cardamom powder (or clove), and dissolved saffron to the lentil coconut milk mixture and heat in low heat for another 2 minutes.
