Narali Bhat

This is an authentic recipe prepared in our house for every rakhi. Actually we have one more festival called Narali Pournima mostly on the same day of Rakhi. So this sweet rice is prepared for both the festival together.



Ingredients


2 cups rice (basmati rice tastes good)


1cup grated jaggery (or according to desired sweetness)


1cup grated fresh coconut


2-3 cloves


1tsp green cardamom powder


1tbsp claryfied butter (ghee)


Method


1. Wash and keep rice aside for half an hour. Heat ghee in a thick bottomed pan and add cloves to it. Once the cloves change colour add the washed rice and saute for a minute.


2. Then add 3cups of warm water to it and cook the rice.


3. In another bowl mix jaggery, coconut and cardamom powder.


4. Once the rice is cooked add the jaggery mixture to it and mix nicely.


5. Serve hot or cold...


So this is my contri to the festive food event hosted by Priti & Purva...
