1 cup = 250ml, 1 tbsp = 15ml, 1 tsp = 5ml
- 1/2 cup Kavuni Arisi/Black Glutinous Rice
- 1/3 cup Grated Fresh Coconut
- 1/2 cup Sugar adjust per preference
- 1/4 tsp Cardamom Powder
- 2 tsp Ghee
- Water as needed
Wash the rice and soak in enough water for 8 hours or overnight. As the black rice is hard to cook, it is essential to soak it first.
Pressure cook the soaked rice with enough water for 5-6 whistles on medium flame until it is cooked. It should still hold its shape to an extent and not be a mush.
Set it on low flame and add sugar. Mix well until the sugar is melted.
As the sugar and rice cook together, it should turn creamy. Add grated coconut and cardamom powder. Mix well.
Add ghee and remove from heat.
Serve warm or cold as dessert.
