THIRUVADIRAI KALI RECIPE
         Thiruvadirai is favored for Lord Shiva, on the day of Thiruvadirai star in Marghazhi (November-December)and  is a festival of great importance. The sweet dish offering on this day, Thiruvadirai kali,  and today i am sharing the recipe of Thiruvadirai Kali recipe. Check out the Thiruvathirai Kootu | Thalagam recipe.
When I called up mom yesterday for the recipe, she told me the entire procedure and I remember her making in a heavy bottomed Brass vessel called “URULI”. Since I don’t have this here I made in pressure cooker like we make Arisi Upma.

INGREDIENTS:

RAW RICE 1/2 CUP
JAGGERY 1 CUP
WATER 3-4 CUPS
MOONG DAL 2 TBLSP
GHEE 2 TBLSP
CARDAMOM POWDER A PINCH
COCONUT (GRATED) 2 TBLSP

kali
METHOD:

  • In a pan dry roast the raw rice till it becomes reddish brown. Be careful not to get it burnt. Allow it to cool.

  • Soak the moong dal for 10 minutes in water and cook this in open flame for 10 minutes or till the dal turns soft and not mushy.
  • Drain the water.

  • In a Pressure cooker add the jaggery and pour a 1/2 cup of water to this.
  • When the jaggery melts filter the impurity and boil the jaggery water for few minutes. Add 3 cups of water to this .
  • Add the coconut and cardamom powder to this.

  • Grind the roasted rice in a mixer into a rava consistency. Don’t grind it too much into a powder. It should be of semolina(rava) consistency.

  • Add this to the boiling jaggery water and add the cooked moong dal.
  • Add ghee.
  • Mix well and pressure cook till 2-3 whistles.
  • Thiruvadirai Kali is ready for neivedhyam.

Notes:

  1. It took 4 cups of water for me to cook . The measurement depends upon the nature of rice. If the rice is too old it needs lot of water. If it is new rice, 2-3 cups is enough.
  2. You can cook this in open flame as we do for rava upma. Since My mom gave me an easy option I have done this in pressure cooker.
  3. Instead of cooking the moong dal separately it can be roasted along with rice and can be ground along with it.
