Hesaru Bele Payasa (Moong dal kheer) step-by-step recipe with photos.
Hesaru bele means moong dal in Kannada. This delicious sweet dish is made mostly during festivals in Karnataka. Made with moong dal or split green gram and flavoured with coconut milk, this simple vegan dessert is refined sugar-free.
Frying the moong dal in ghee or clarified butter perfectly is really important in this dish. If we fry the moong dal more, it will take a long time to cook. And if we skip the frying, it will make the payasa stick. I fry it until it is lightly golden and beautifully aromatic. I then boil it with water until it was tender and mixed in the jaggery. Once the jaggery melts, I add the coconut milk. I let it boil for just a minute or two and the payasa is ready.
Simple to make and perfect for any occasion.
