Moong Dal and Sabudana Kheer



This is one of the easiest made Indian dessert,is ready in more than 20 minutes.

One of my personal favourite as I am not very fond of milk and products made up of milk.Here coconut milk is used instead of milk.

Ingredients :

1/4 cup Moong Dal ( skinless)

1/4 cup Sabudana (Sago Pearls)

1/2 cup grated Jaggery.

10 Cashewnut cut into peices.

1/4 teaspoon Cardamom powder

1 tbsp Ghee.

400 ml Coconut Milk

A pinch of salt

Method :

Soak the moong dal and sabudana (separately) in water for about 2-3 hours.

In a pan mix together soaked moong dal and half quantity of coconut milk along with one cup water.

Cook on medium flame for about 15 minutes or till the moong dal is half-cooked.Ado a pinch of salt.


Add the soaked sabudana and mix well. Add 1 cup water, stir well and cook till the sabudana and moong dal are completely cooked.

Add the rest of the coconut milk and stir well.

Add the grated jaggery and mix well till completely dissolved.

Keep stirring and cook for about 5 minutes.

Heat the ghee in a small pan and fry cashew nuts till they get light brown colour.

Add the ghee along with nuts  to the payasam.


Turn off heat and add the cardamom powder. Mix well.

Pour in glasses or bowls and serve warm or chilled.

Happy Cooking !!!
