Chana Dal Payasam | Kadalai Paruppu Payasam (Sanaga Pappu Payasam) ~ Tamil New Year Special

Happy Tamil New year and Vishu to all those who are celebrating!

While I was talking about what to make for the Tamil New year, Konda was asking how come we just had one and another new year has come. Well I had to tell that was Ugadi, Telugu new year and this Tamil New year. I know it must be hard to understand for her. But I didn't know how else to explain.

I was telling Athamma that Amma celebrates this day with the usual pomp and show. So she was asking me what I was planning to make. We finally ended up making this simple version of Chana Dal Payasam. Athamma normally makes Sanaga Pappu Payasam this way. As time was short, simpler way of making was adapted. Yet the taste was no less.

For the savory part, we wanted to make Moong dal Vadas, maybe next time. We made simple Onion pakodas as part of the neivedyam.
