My kids crave for sweet sometimes and so, I try making a few sweet dishes once in a while. This time the reason for a sweet dish was the Nativity of mother Mary which is celebrated very grandly at St. Mary's Basilica, Shivajinagar on September 8th every year. Thousands of devotees come here for 9 days starting on 31st of August to the 8th of September. This recipe is very simple and all the ingredients are easily available.

Preparation time: 15 min
Cooking time: 30min

Channa dal/ split chickpeas - ½ cup
Moong dal / split green gram- ½ cup
Sabakki/ Sabudana - 50 gms
Coconut milk thin - 2 cups
Jaggery - 2 cups ( adjust according to your taste)
Semolina/ rava - ½ cup
Cardamom powdered - 7 
Ghee - 1 tsp
Cashew nuts - few
Raisins - few

  1. Cook channa dal and moong dal with water in a pressure cooker.
  2. Soak sabakki for 10 mins.
  3. In a small wok, heat ghee and add cashew nuts. 
  4. Once the cashew nuts change color add raisins.
  5. Let the raisins fluff.
  6. Now switch off the heat and keep aside.
  7. Smash the dal and add coconut milk.
  8. Let it come to a boil.
