Pasiparuppu Payasam/Moong Dhal Kheer/Split Green Gram Dessert

Pasiparuppu Payasam/Moong Dhal Kheer/Split Green Gram Dessert

Split Green Gram is rich in Protein, yet it is easily digested. It doesn’t cause flatulence
like other grams, that’s why it often finds its place in baby food and restricted diet
(pathiyam) for sick and elderly. 

Paruppu payasam or Split Green gram dessert is made during festivals and Poojas as
‘Prasad’/’Offerings for God’.

It’s a Chettinad traditional dessert, which is suitable even for ‘toddlers’.

    Sorry as this is actually not related to cooking but spirituality, i thought of asking u here as u don't frequently visit ur other blog that has an article on mantrarajapada stotram so i thought of asking you here as iam facing lot of job problems.

    First do we have to recite the whole stotram 12 times and then recite all the 12 verses individually 12 times or only the whole stotram 12 times?

    You had said one of ur friends got a job after recitation, how did she recite it and how quickly were the results?

    Can i also recite runa vimochana stotram for getting job?

    Thanking you
