Madgane | Traditional Konkani Payasam

Madgane is the quintessential Konkani payasam which is made of Split bengal gram in coconut milk, sweetened with jaggery and studded with ghee roast cashew and raisens. In Konkani, all payasams  are referred to as "Goddi".
Madgane is traditionally cooked during our festive occasions. This reminds me of the elaborate meal served on the banana leaf on such occasions where the last item to be served is the madgane, which is then quickly slurped off the leaf !

    Note:
    This payasam tends to thicken up as times passes by because of the dal in it. So add a dash of water when you re-heat leftovers & adjust the sweet levels accordingly.
    Adding a rice powder is optional. It gives the payasam beautiful vicious texture. Some people roast Chana Dal, then wash it with water bfr pressure cooking. This also enhances flavor.
