Senagapappu Saggubiyyam Payasam with a Simple Lunch Thali

Some times insted of curry, Sambar, rasam and rice I feel like having different flavord rice with a pickle and some side snacks like bajji, masala vada, pakodi . This menu makes a different satisfaction. I made this simple thali for Srirama navami. Now it is the season ending for Amla so insted of making normal Pulihora, I made Usiri annam (usirikaya Pulihora). I replace vada with onion pakoda. Got bored with Paramannam, chekkara pongal so made this different payasam with Sago and chenna dal (saggu biyyam and senagapappu) and I made Panakam and Butter milk (majjiga, neermore) also. Hope you all like my thali
Let's check what I served in this Simple Lunch Thali
mini thali 1. Senagapappu saggubiyyam payasam.
2. Usiri annam (usirikaya pulihora)
3. Ven pongal(kattepongali)
4. Daddojanam (curd rice)
5. Onion Pakodi (ullipaya pakodilu)
6. Lemon Pickle (nimmakaya pachadi)
Pongali, Daddojanam & Onion Pakodi (ullipaya pakodilu)

Usiri annam & Senaga pappu Saggubiyyam payasam

senagapappu saggu payasam INGREDIENTS:---
Saggubiyyam (sabudana) --- 1 cup
Senagapappu (split chick peas, channa dal) -- 1/2 cup
Grated jaggery --  1 cup
Milk ---   2 cups
Cashew nuts --  10
Raisins ----  10
Ghee  ---  1 tab
Cardamom powder  --- 1 tea sp
1. Soak channa dal in water for 1/2 an hour and pressure cook till 2 whistles.
2. Soak sabudana in water for 2 hous and cook in 2 cups of water till soft.
3.Strain cooked chana dal if any water is left.
4.In this chana dal water soak grated jaggery for 10 minutes and strain, set a side.
5. Heat ghee in a pan fry cashews and raisins remove and set a side.
6. In a heavy bottom pan boil jaggery water bring to a full boil and cook for 8 minutes.
7. Now add cooked channa dal, cooked sabudana with liquid, keep the heat in low flame and let it cook for 8 more minutes keep stirring in between. 
8. After 8 minutes switch off the heat and add milk (boil the milk and let it cool If you add hot milk some times milk will get curdle. so cool the milk and then add to payasam.)
9. Give a good stir to combine every thing add fried cashew nuts, raisins, cardamom powder mix well and serve.
I wanted my payasam little thick like paramannam(pudding) so I used 1 cup milk. But in ingredients I gave 2 cups milk this makes little thin payasam consistence so check your like and adjust milk. Insted of jaggery can use sugsr also but I like jaggery taste so choice is yours
Hope you all enjoy this payasam please bear with my payasam picture will post  nice picture in few days.
