I took a break as I lost my son last year, my boy Cerberus was 7 and he was and will remain the most precious and handsome Doberman you could lay your eyes on.
I'd like to start with a sweet dish guys as come what may life goes on and you got to live it and smile no matter what.
This Prasad is made during poojas and offered to god in most south Indian homes, I do not make offerings to idols but I sure love the aroma and taste of hot prasad so I make them on festivals after a nice vegetarian lunch.
Below is the pic of my boy, looking handsome as always !
Lets start cooking !
Add little water and pressure cook for 2 whistles, the jaggery melts and the rice gets mushy, this is what we want..
Add the heat back on and stir for a min, now add in the beaten rice.
At this point if you feel the mixture is very dry and sticky so add in about half cup or more water if you want it a bit on the runny side. Stir well.
Add in the ghee into a pan and fry the coconut pieces and cashews till brown, switch off the flame and add in the grated coconut . Pour this into the cooked Prasad.
Usually a lot of ghee is used but I stuck to ½ cup.
