MEETHA CHAWAL(SWEET RICE)

I think this is my MAGNIFICENT CLICK for Gayathri of Just urs

Basmati rice ---- 1 cup
Water ---- 4 cups
Almonds ---- 1/2 cup cut in to thin slices
Raisins --- 1/2 cup
cashew ---- 1/4 cup broken
Cardamoms --- 6 no.
sugar ---- 3/4 cup
ghee --- 4-5 tab sp
Milk --- 1/2 cup
Yellow food color ---- 1/4 tea sp
saffron --- a pinch
1. Soak almonds in hot water for 10- 20 min. remove the skin and cut in to thin slices.
2. Wash and soak rice for 15- 20 min add 2 cardamom s , food color and cook in ahigh flame.
3. When rice is half cooked turn the heat off and drain the water and keep the rice a side.
4. Now heat ghee in a sauce pan add remaining cardamoms,cashew let them fry till light brown color then add raisins and then add sugar mix once and add 1/2 cup milk and cook till sugar dissolves.
5. then now add almond slices and half cooked rice and saffron mix once and cover with a tight lid or a foil and cook in a very low flame for 10 min.
(If you have a dought that your rice will burn under then place a tawa(skillet )on flame and then keep the sauce pan on it and then cook in alow flame for 10 min.)
6. serve hot or at room temperature.
I enjoyed this rice with some fresh apple and orange pieces.
This is my entry for FESTIVE FOOD EVENT - HOLI at PURVAS DAAWAT hosted by my dear friend Purva.
