WISH YOU A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS ONAM...A very happy and prosperous onam to all my friends who celebrate onam. We had our onam sadya (feast) on Sunday as today is a work day for me. Payasam is the most important part of traditional Kerala sadya. Traditionally, coconut milk is used for Kerala style parippu payasam. But this time we made this payasam with cow's milk, like the Tamil Nadu and Andhra style moong dal payasam. My inlaws are with us for this onam and my MIL also makes this version of parippu payasam, which is flavored with powdered cumin, dry ginger and cardamom. The color of the payasam varies from dark brown to golden brown based on the color of the jaggery used.
