On my recent visit, I was pleasantly surprised to come across one such innovation in my Mom's kitchen. Her enthusiasm to try out something new makes her create awesome dishes even though she is in her sixties. I guess the innovation genes are hardwired in the family DNA. Anyways getting back to the dish, it is a simplified form of the 'ghora manda' or 'ghura manda' that is usually prepared during the Manabasa Gurubar puja.
Read on for the recipe -
Preparation Time - 30-35 mins
- 1 1/2 cup arwa rice
- 1/4 cup coconut (chopped into small bits)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- sugar as per taste
- 1 tsp ghee
- a pinch of camphor
Pour the hot mixture onto a greased steel plate with raised sides (about and inch and a half is good). Allow it to rest till it is completely cool.
Cut into pieces and serve. Tastes better on the next day so do pop in some of it into the fridge.
