Akkaravadisal is sweet dish made with rice, jaggery and milk.This is a typical Tamil Brahmin recipe (Iyengar recipe) and is my favorite dessert. This is made during Pongal. Today let us learn how to make Akkaravadisal using this easy Akkaravadisal recipe.
Wash and soak rice for half an hour. Drain and keep it aside.
Fry moong dal on medium heat until golden brown.
Heat 1/4 cup of water, add jaggery, stir on low heat for a few minutes until it dissolves. Remove from heat, strain it to remove impurities and keep it aside.
Boil milk, add rice, dal to it and cook on medium heat till it becomes mushy.
Boil the filtered jaggery water on medium heat, when it starts bubbling, add to the cooked rice + dal mixture and cook on low heat stirring until the rice and dal gets incorporated with the jaggery well.
Fry cashew nuts, raisins in ghee separately and add everything along with the ghee to the akkaravadisal.
Add cardamom powder, edible camphor and mix well. Serve piping hot.
Note - You can make akkaravadisal in pressure cooker also but for best results follow this method.
