Senagapappu Saggubiyyam Payasam ~ Chana dal Sago Kheer

Print version of Senagapappu Saggubiyyam Payasam ~ Chana dal Sago Kheer
Chana dal Jaggery Kheer

I love festivals, planning the menu for a festive feast and especially look forward to try sweet treats that I’m yet to blog. Senagapappu Payasam is a traditional South Indian sweet dish that I prepared for our Ugadi festive meal. This lentil based sweet dish incorporates the same ingredients that you’d find in a regular Payasam – jaggery, milk or coconut milk and cardamom powder. The star ingredient in today’s recipe is chana dal (Bengal gram) along with sago.

    Hi Sailu
    what is the propotion of water in which the channa dal is soaked. Should it be cooked to a paste?

    btw the pic looks fabulous and mouth watering….

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Add two cups of water to one cup chana dal. The dal should hold shape and soft on bite.

  • shylaja

    HI Sailu,

    Does the saggubiyam not be soaked before we boil it in water till transparent? i think if its not soaked it might take longer to cook. Pls advice.

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      You can soak for half an hour or so in water and then cook.

    Sailu,

    I found this recipe copied word to word, page to page here
    spicyrecipes.co.cc/2010/04/senagapappu-saggubiyyam-payasam-chana.html

    beware this site also opens lots of pop-ups:)

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Thanks for informing me, Latha. This person has copied a lot of content from my blog as well as from other blogs. Unfortunate.

  • Latha

    a very nice recipe, Sailu. And you’ve explained the method very well. I fried the sago in ghee for a while and then cooked.

  • Satya

    Hi.. Can we make the same recipe with vermicelli instead of sago?

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Yes, you can use vermicelli.
