Moong Dal Payasam in Microwave | Microwave Pesara Pappu Payasam | How to make Moong Dal Payasam Step By Step Recipe

Making sweets in Microwave is pretty easy, especially if you are working with a lentil like Moong dal. So when Priya wanted to have Sweets for this edition of Microwave Easy Cooking Event, I had to think of another sweet that can be made.

I have already posted one version of making Moong Dal Payasam, which has Poppy seeds for a kick. While this was with different take and one that MW chef showed in a jiffy. Moong Dal works out easy in most dishes and as a sweet it simply rocks. I enjoyed eating this and making it. Do try if you want to have a quick sweet dish in microwave.




With the sun playing hide and seek the past couple of days, we are unsure when it is going to open up. As per norms, it usually rains in the night. But these days it just rains when we are all ready to set out. Imagine having to go out in pouring rain, only to see it all dry the moment you reach your destination. Not that I don't enjoy the rains, while I love getting drenched and don't mind sitting all wet at work too, it kind of puts off when you have to wade through dirty waters. Wish the authorities address the issue, rather than building showy things.

Let's see how to make Moong Dal Payasam Step by Step in Microwave


Micro Milk for 7 mins, keep it aside.

Dry roast Moong dal for 4 mins and soak in water for 30 mins.

Roast Cashew nuts and chopped Coconut in 1 tsp for 2 mins

Melt Jaggary in water and keep it aside.

Cook Moong dal along with the water for 25 mins in micro mode. Then add the boiled milk and micro for 5 mins.

Add the melted jaggary along with sugar and micro for 3 mins.

Finally add the roasted Cashew nuts and coconut and micro for 5 mins.




Stir in between once and put it back for remaining time.


Microwave Moong Dal Payasam

Moong Dal - 3 cups
Jaggary - 1/2 kgs
Sugar - 50 gms
Cardamon a pinch
Milk - 1/2 liter

Method to prepare:

Fry the Moong dal for 4 minutes and soak it in water for 30 mins.

Meanwhile boil the milk for 7 mins in micro mode.

Then cook along with the milk, moong dal for 25 mins in micro mode.

You can boil the milk along with moong dal but this way all the milk gets evaporated, so it is better to boil it separately.

Roast the cashew nuts and coconut in 1 tsp ghee and keep it aside.

When the moong dal is cooked, add these roasted nuts and micro for 5 mins.

Serve it hot
Moong dal tastes best when served hot, but you can refrigerate it for a cool dessert.
