Nothing compares to a healthy munching! Sweet and toothsome delight to have!


1 cup rice, soaked and rinsed

3⁄4 cup jiggery

1 cup freshly grated coconut

3 tbsp. ghee

2 tsp. freshly ground cardamom

2 tbsp. hopped cashews, toasted

2 tbsp. raisins

1 ripe banana, sliced


In a medium pot over high heat, bring 5 cups water to a boil. Add the rice and boil until the water nearly bubbles over, 5 minutes.

Lower the heat to medium and simmer, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes. Partially cover and simmer for 15 minutes more. Add 2 cups water and stir to prevent the rice from sticking to the bottom.

Partially cover and cook until the rice is very tender (almost overcooked) and the water is mostly absorbed, 20–25 minutes. Stir in the jaggery to dissolve, 3 minutes.

Stir in the coconut, ghee, and cardamom. Serve in bowls, topped with the cashews, raisins, and banana.
