Cooking Time Required: 60-80 mins
Cost of preparation: 100-110 rupees


  • Fragrant rice ( 1/2 cup )
  • milk ( 1 litre )
  • ghee ( 3 tsp )
  • sugar ( 2-3 tbs )
  • cashews ( 1/2 cup )
  • salt ( a pinch )
  • cardamon ( 2 nos )
  • condensed milk ( 1/2 cup )

Cooking: Wash the rice and transfer to a pressure cooker. Add 1/4 of the milk, ghee ,sugar and salt. Close the lid and cook for 2-3 whistles. Remove from fire and allow to cool down slightly.

Boil the milk separately. Fry the cashews and keep aside.

Transfer the contents of the pressure cooker to a wok. Add boiling milk and cashews. Allow the milk to boil till it thickens ( Takes about 1 hour ). Add cardamon powder and condensed milk at the last. Cook for 2-3 more mins. Remove fom fire and allow to cool.
