Akki kadle bele payasa recipe - Tandla Paays - Rice and chanadal kheer

Akki kadlebele payasa or kheer recipe -Wishing You all a Very Happy and Prosperous Akshay Tritiya. I am celebrating this special day with this delicious payasa. Akki kadlebele payasa is a traditional Coastal Karnataka dessert, prepared with rice, chana dal, coconut milk and jaggery. The combination of rice rava and chana dal gives extra texture and taste to the kheer.  In combination with coconut milk, jaggery and cardamom, this payasa releases unique mouth watering  flavor. This is really a delicious kheer which I  make often.
