Akki kadlebele payasa step-by-step recipe with photos.
Akki Kadlebele Payasa or rice and Bengal gram kheer/pudding is a simple, yet delicious dish prepared mostly during festivals. Akki means rice and kadlebele means Bengal gram in Kannada. These two are the main ingredients of the dish. This is also served in most of the temples in Karnataka. This traditional dish is vegan, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free.
This sweet dish is wholesome and is a self-contained dish on its own. This is a very unique, less-known traditional dish which is also served as a Prasada in temples in Karnataka.
To prepare this delicious dish, I cook together rice and Bengal gram and simmer it with jaggery and dried coconut. That’s it! The result is a beautiful pudding that tastes absolutely delicious.
This dish is refined sugar-free and vegan. A simple and unique dish that is ready in a few minutes and great for festivals. Try this authentic recipe for your next festival and enjoy it.
