Narali Bhat... Sweet coconut Rice to all my Brothers

First of all "Wish you all a very Happy Raksha Bandhan".
As I mentioned in my last year's Raksha Bandhan Post, We Maharashtrians celebrate this festival as 'Narali Pornima'. We prepare some sweet things from coconut. This time I made typical Maharashtrian recipe from coconut that is 'Narali Bhat' (sweet coconut Rice). My younger sister suggested me to prepare this dish & post it on Raksha Bandhan. Thanks Sneha. So this sweet rice along with the Rakhi from both of us to all our brothers, whom we can not meet on this special day .
Happiness, prosperity & success …….On Raksha Bandhan, we are wishing your life be filled with all these & more….. Miss you Bro….



Ingredients

Rice - 2 cups (sona Masoori/ Ambe mohor)

Grated Coconut - 2 cups

Grated Jaggery - 2 cups (I used organic this time)

Pure ghee - 2 tablespoon

Cloves - 3-4

Cardamom powder - 1 teaspoon

Salt - 1 pinch (optional)


Procedure

Wash the rice 2-3 times. Drain the water and keep aside for half an hour. Heat 2 tablespoons ghee in kadhai. Put cloves in it. Now add rice and saute it for one minute. Then add 4 cups of water. Cover it with lid. Mix coconut and jaggery together. When the rice is almost done add the coconut mixture and a pinch of salt (it increases the taste of sweet dishes). Mix well. Keep the lid and cook the rice completely. When done, add cardamom powder and mix it. Narali Bhat is ready to serve.
