Cashew Nuts - 12 pieces

  • Wash & soak the rice in water for 5 minutes. Fry cashews & raisins in ghee, till golden brown & keep aside.
  • Mix water into milk & bring it to a regular boil. Add the cardamom powder after it boils. When a nice aroma is released, add rice.
  • Stir it & cover it with a lid. Allow the rice to cook for 2 - 3 minutes. Then add cashew & raisins & stir. Now leave it covered again, stirring, to check the rice, at regular intervals.
  • Continue this process until the rice is cooked well. Uncover it after that. Keep stirring to let the milk condense.
