Sweet Rice

I got to taste this sweet rice from my colleague who bought this as a "Prasadham". It was so delish. This is not the regular Sakkara Pongal because there is no dhall in the recipe. Let me explain the recipe to you in detail. The taste of the dish is that, rice should be perfectly cooked and it gets hard when boiling in syrup.


Raw Rice- 500 g
Water- 1 litre
Salt- a pinch
Jaggery- 1 kg (you can adjust as per your preference)
Water- 1/2 cup (For syrup)
Ghee- 1 cup
Cashew- 1/2 cup
Dry Grapes (Raisins)- 1/2 cup
Elachi (Cardamon) Powder- 1 tsp
