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.

  • Fry for a minute
  • Add the water and milk to this.

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.

  1. how have you been Jeyashri? could not visit earlier…hope you had a great Diwali with family. this dish looks superb…actually am partial to desserts especialy these ones with creamy milk in it.

  2. 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
