Kadala parippu payasam – കടല പരിപ്പ് പായസം

Kadala parippu payasam is a traditional Kerala style payasam. The main ingredient for this kheer / payasam is split bengal gram / channa dal / kaḍala parippu.

We usually can find this Kadala pradhaman in Kerala sadhya which is served in most of the Kerala weddings and other traditional functions such as Onam, Vishu etc.

This pradhaman is my mom’s favorite payasam.
