Kadalai Paruppu Payasam/Channa Dhal Payasam /கடலை பருப்பு பாயசம்

Payasam is our family's favorite and I often make it.Most of the Fridays prasadam would be either payasam or kesari.

We are starting the Blogging Marathon#77 edition,sharing Vegan Sweets.Coming to vegan options of Indian sweets,coconut milk is a great substitute.

Today's recipe is a simple yet flavorful payasam made with channa dhal.This payasam needs only 10-15 minutes if the coconut milk is ready.
