This is one of those dishes that make me wonder why some things are only made for festivals. This kheer is something that we traditionally make for Ganesh Chaturthi.
1/2 cup Cashewnuts, broken to bits
1/2 cup Bengal Gram Dal (Chana Dal)
1/2 cup Coconut Milk
1/2 cup Jaggery, grated
1/4 cup Rice Flour
1/2 tsp Cardamom Powder
Cook the bengal gram dal and the cashews in a pressure cooker with 3 cups of water. To this, add the grated jaggery and coconut milk. Add about one more cup of water and bring to a boil. Add the cardamom powder.
Mix the rice flour with a little water and make a paste. Add this to the boiling mixture and cook until the mixture thickens.
