A South Indian delicacy : Moong Dal Payasam

Being a North Indian I really love to relish and cook South Indian dishes. Most of the vegetarian South Indian dishes are vegan by default and have an amazing unique taste and flavours.

For a long time, I didn't post any recipe here but today I prepared a long-awaited recipe MoongDal Payasam. It is a type of dessert or can say Moong Dal Kheer.

I had it several times in a South Indian restaurant but prepared it in my kitchen the first time and it is loved by kids too much.
