Meethe Chawal

Deepavali/Diwali is round the corner and that means some rich food at home especially sweets. We need not buy sweets from shop but can always give a try at home. Today’s recipe is something sweet but is equally easy. It’s meethe chawal. I learnt this from cooking shooking video have made a little changes to it. Hope you like it and try it.
Here is what we need:

  • Long grained white rice 1 cup
  • Sugar 1 ¼ th cup(I used this much as the sugar wasn’t too sweet, adjust accordingly)
  • Green cardamoms pods 4 crushed into powder
  • Cinnamon 1" piece
  • Saffron dissolved in warm water ½  tsp
  • Ghee 5 tbsp (you can use 3 more tbsp if you aren’t calorie conscious)
  • Dry fruits and nuts chopped finely for garnishing(I used cashew nut, almonds and pistachios)

  1. Soak rice for half an hour.
  2. Cook it and drain out the water when it is nearly ready (say 80%) .
  3. Now heat the ghee and roast  the nuts (reserve some for garnishing)and add all the ingredients rice, cinnamon, sugar and saffron..
  4. When this is done, cover it with a lid and cook on low flame till rice separates and is dry.
  5. Sprinkle dry fruits on top.
Serve immediately.
Have Fun.
Happy Cooking,
