Kannur Style Vanpayar Payasam (Red Cow Peas Payasam Recipe)
This is a very traditional payasam which my grandam and mom used to make. Sooo rich and delicious Vanpayar payasam always reminds me of my childhood. On off days mom used to make this as a breakfast item. It will fill you up really well. They taste so great the next day after refrigerating.
Unlike the other normal kerala payasam, we are adding ground white rice to this payasam, which make payasam little more thicker and creamier. You could call them as a pudding payasam as well. They have more like pudding like consistency.
They are soo rich with coconut milk, sweetened with jaggery, loaded with cooked Vanpayar (Red cow peas) which makes this delicious payasam soo healthy too. I have added extra grated coconut to get the biting in between the creamy paysam.
This recipe is my contribution to this months’s MFB challenge, “Cook from your mom’s recipe”. You cant go wrong with your grandma’s and mom’s recipe isn’t??! and those dishes are sooo close to our heart too! I am so happily sharing my mom’s recipe here.
