  • Moong Dal  - ½ cup
  • Water - 1.25 cups
  • Jaggery - ¼ cup
  • Coconut Milk - ½ cup
  • Cardamom - 1
  • Ghee - 2 tsp
  • Cashews - 5
  • Raisins - 1 tbsp
  1. Keep all the ingredients ready. Roast moong dal with ghee until nice aroma comes and pressure cook it for 4 whistles with 1.25 cups of water in medium flame.
  2. In the meantime,ghee fry the cashews&raisins and keep it ready. Heat jaggery in a saucepan with water until it's immersed level. Once it melts completely, strain the jaggery water through a strainer to remove impurities and keep it ready. Open the pressure cooker once pressure released. Mash it with a laddle if required, but make sure Moong dal should be soft but not too mushy, so don't mash too much.
