AKKARAVADISAL

   This is  a sweet dish which i wanted to try for a long time. Finally i made it this weekend and it came out very nice and i love the creamy texture of the dish.

INGREDIENTS:

RAW RICE 3/4  CUP
MOONG DAL 1/4 CUP
WATER 4 CUPS
MILK 3 CUPS
SUGAR 1 CUP
GHEE 2 TBLSP
CASHEW NUTS 10 NOS.
ELACHI POWDER A PINCH
EDIBLE CAMPHOR(PACHHA KARPOORAM) A PINCH(OPTIONAL)

I didnt use the pressure cooker method, though i used a pressure cooker, instead of a heavy bottomed kadai.

METHOD:

  • Wash the rice and moongdal and soak it in 3 cups of water for 1/2 an hour.
  • In a heavy bottomed kadai/pressure cooker, add a tsp of ghee and fry the cashew nuts till it turns into a nice golden colur.

  • When it is done keep it aside and add the rice and moongdal (keep the water aside)
  • Fry for a minute
  • Add the water and milk to this.

  • Allow it to cook, by stirring in between.
  • Allow the rice and dal to cook very nicely.

  • In a  kadai add the sugar and add 2 tblsp of water.
  • When it comes to one string consistency switch it off and transfer the sugar syrup to the cooked rice and moong dal .
  • Add ghee and the fried cashew nuts , elachi powder and mix well.

Note:

  1. Sugar can be replaced with jagerry also.
  2. You can also keep the rice and moongdal in a vessel and pressure cook it.
  3. If  you are cooking in a pressure cooker, keep the mixture in a big vessel ,otherwise the milk will come out and the rice wont get cooked.

  23. Y don't u specify which milk-----either coconut milk (or) cow's milk... Not only here, in al blogs i surfed, people don't mention it correctly...
    Some understands about which milk u r using, but new to cooking ppl like me get confused..

    So pls try to specify & present more with stepwise photograph (very helpful it ll b)

    THanks Jai

    1. We never use cow's milk as we get fresh in India from milk man. We use the cow's milk(not any other) which is available in bottles and packets.
