Masoor dal payasam | Onam 2019

Masoor dal payasam with step by step pictures.

Happy Onam to all the people to celebrate it. On this special day here I am with a super yummy dessert/payasam, masoor dal payasam. I have another reason to make this dessert, there are two birthdays in a row, today my husband's and a day after tomorrow it is my birthday. So to celebrate it I made this.

Coming to this recipe it is so easy to make. Cook the dal, then add milk, sweetener and cook further. End with ghee fried cashew. Here I used ordinary milk but you can also use coconut milk. Let us see how to make this.
