¼ kg moong dhal
1 small coconut
¼ cup raw rice
¼ kg jaggery
¼ tsp. cardamom powder
Few cashew nuts, raisins
Pinch of salt

Grind coconut with little water and extract about one cup of thick coconut juice. Add little more water to the ground coconut residue and extract about 2-3 cups of thin coconut juice and keep aside.  Soak raw rice for an hour and then grind with little water and set aside.  Cook Dhal in little water or with little thin coconut juice till soft.  Add jaggery, thin coconut juice and a pinch of salt.  Bring this to a boil.  Add cashew nuts and raisins.  Then, slowly add raw rice batter and stir continuously so that no lumps form.  Bring this to a boil, till the mixture thickens.  Finally add thick coconut juice, keep stirring on very slow flame and close after a boil.  Add cardamom powder.

Note: Melt jaggery in little water and strain to remove small stones/sand etc.

    I also wash 1/2 cup sabudana (sago) in water and keep aside for 10 minutes. Add it to the dal when it is almost half cooked.

    When in a hurry, I also use 2 tsp rice flour mixed with water instead of soaking/grinding raw rice.
