Goodies for Ganpati - Madgane


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.
This also goes to dear Asha as yet another entry for the RCI Karnataka event. I am also sending this to Latha for her Gowri Ganesh event.

I like this kheer a lot. We make something similar & call it a pradhaman. My hubby recently made it for Onam. I like this 'cos there's no milk in it:-)

Never heard of Madgane - looks quite delicious Raaga....how does the coconut milk taste with the chana dal? is the taste of chana dal prominent over the coconut milk or the other way round?

Priyanka said...

Nice entry Raaga.

Reg.you query in my blog:

For adding the text on your picture you should be using applications like Corel Draw or Paintshop. You could get a trial version and try it.

I am sorry for the late (very late) reply. I have been held up with other things.

Each dish is yummy: the paysaa, the ambat and avrya bendi! Great going, dear!

Dee said...

I have heard abt this from my M-I-L , probably i should try this for K, thanks for the recipe raaga!

Just to add to what Seec said, you could try GIMP or a trial version of photoshop, GIMP is free of cost and comes with help and also works as good as photoshop. I could send you the link if you are interested and want to give it a try

Payasams and I are not on talking terms :D - this payasa with kadalebele and coconut milk must taste more like a pudding though - perhaps i should try this chilled - thanks for the great entry.

Latha Narasimhan said...
