Karupatti Payasam Recipe - Green gram Palm Jaggery Kheer - Paasipayaru Karupatti Sweet Kanji - Healthy dessert recipe - Pooja recipes - naivedyam recipes

As I mentioned in my previous Kheer / Payasam posts Kheer is one fast and never go wrong dishes. It also provides options to be healthy too. Recently I use Palm jaggery in my diet. I feel my hemoglobin is getting better. Some of my friends also provided similar feedback. So for this festive season I wanted to try kheer with Karupatti / Plam jaggery. It tasted so nice (even though the color is not so appealing). Palm jaggery provided a different / unique taste to Kheer.
