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:

Ingredients
  • 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)


Method:
  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.
