Green Gram Payasam/Kheer

Green Gram Payasam/kheer is delicious and at the same time healthy breakfast or a dessert. I remember my mom makes this payasam with green gram, milk, coconut, cardamom, ghee, cashews and jaggery. For a change, I added vermicelli in this dish. It tastes great. So friends, try this out and share your comments!

Furthermore, I would like to share the health benefits of green gram. Firstly, green grams or mung beans are high in important vitamins, minerals, protein and fiber. They are also a good source of antioxidants, which reduce heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers. Mung beans are a good source of potassium, magnesium and fiber. Mung beans contain soluble fiber and resistant starch, which can promote digestive health.They are also high in folate, iron and protein, all of which women need more of during pregnancy. Since green grams are healthy, delicious and versatile, consider incorporating them into your diet.
