Cooking Time Required: 10-15 mins
Cost of preparation: 20-25 rupees

Ingredients: Urad dal ( dehusked, 1 cup ), broken basmati rice ( 1 cup ), ripe banana ( 1 no ), freshly grated coconut ( 1 cup ), chenna or ricotta cheese ( 1 cup ), sugar ( 6 tsp ), cardamon ( 3-4 nos ), peppercorn ( 6-7 nos ), salt, baking powder ( 1 pinch, not required if given 3-4 hours to ferment ), raisins ( 1/3 cup ), ghee.

Preparation: Soak the urad dal for 4-5 hours.

Wash and soak the broken rice for 10 mins. Drain all the water and ground into a fine powder.

Ground the urad dal with the rice flour, banana, 2 cardamons & the peppercorns to get a smooth paste. Add salt to taste and 1 tsp sugar , mix well and keep aside. Add the baking powder if you do not have time to ferment the batter.

Mash the chenna with 2 tsp sugar and cardamon powder ( 1 no ).

Cooking: Heat 1 tsp ghee on a pan. Add the raisins and fry till they swell up. Add the sugar ( 3 tsp ) & coconut at this stage. Fry for 5 min and sprinkle some cardamom powder ( 1 no ). Remove from the pan.

Heat 1/2 of ghee on the pan. Spread a layer of batter. Sprinkle the mashed chenna all over the pitha. Spread another layer of batter over it. Sprinkle the fried coconut over the batter. Top it with a final layer of batter.
