cherupayar payasam / pachai payaru payasam / Green gram kheer

By seeing this picture I remember a Malayalam film dialogue by comedian plus National Award winner actor Salim kumar "kanan lukkillelum enikku nalla budhiya":):) I don't have look but I'm brilliant! Yea green gram payasam don't have wonderful look but it tastes heavenly..I know this pics won't tempt you but believe me..it is a tasty dessert with less ingredients.. 
Green gram is rich in vitamin A, B ,C and E and it is a low fat food with high protein content. 

I love to prepare easy peasy payasams. My hubby loves podiyari payasam but now cherupayar payasam is a hit in our home :)

Note :

  • You can fry the green gram before preparing payasam and you may crush it in blender.
  • You can use 2 cup thin coconut milk and 1 cup thick coconut milk.Cook the green gram in thick coconut milk and finally add thick one.
  • If you have shortage of coconut milk use full fat cows milk as a substitute.
