The Story of the Green Gram Pasayam / Paasip Payaru Kheer

     About a month back, our family hired a cook to prepare feast for our guests in a family function. While preparing payasam, the cook used Paccaipayaru (Greengram) instead of Paasip paruppu (Moong dal).
 Luckily the payasam turned out to be very good and the Green gram Pasayam recipe was born. I tried it again at home and everyone including my kid lapped it up. Such is the story of Green gram Pasayam.
