Kavuni arisi sweet recipe
Kavuni arisi sweet recipe a chettinad special sweet made for weddings.
- 1 cup kavuni arisi(black rice)
- 3 cups water
- 1/2 cup coconut
- 1/2 cup sugar (I used cane sugar)
- 1/2 tsp cardamom powder
- 2 tsp ghee
Measure the rice and soak atleast for 6 hours.
Drain water rinse it couple of times, then transfer to pressure cooker.
Add water and pressure cook for 6-8 whistles in low medium flame.when you open the rice should be like this with little water floating on top and rice should be slightly mushy but the rice should have a bit of bite .
Mash it slightly, add sugar and coconut.
Simmer and cook for 5mins in low flame.Finally add ghee.
Then add cardamom powder cook for 2mins then switch off.
- Usually the measure of all the 3 ingredients is the same like if we take 1 cup kavuni rice then its 1 cup sugar and 1 cup coconut.But I usually reduce it as its too much of sweet taste for us.
- Ghee is just for flavour
- Usually white sugar is used you can replace it with cane sugar or jaggery.I used cane sugar.
