    Doodh Paak - rich & aromatic.

    This Gujarathi dessert is equivalent to our SI pal payasam, but made rich with nuts & flavours!
    Tis is best taken hot/warm and not chilled.

    The pressure pan being wide is more suitable, to prevent overflowing. Or use a big pressure cooker.

    Grease thebottom of the pan wth 1 tsp melted ghee.
    Add:

    Full fat milk - 500 ml

    Basmathi, soaked for 30 mtes & drained - 1 tbsp

    Sugar - 3 tbsp

    Cardamom powder - ½ tsp

    Nutmeg powder - ¼ tsp

    Sliced pista & almond - 1tbsp

    When milk starts boiling, simmer, close the pan & keep the weight.

    Cook for 10 mtes & switch off.

    Cool, open & garnish with more sliced almond + pistas.

    Fruit Pongal - Less ghee & delightfully fruity!

    I used Kalkandu / sugar candy. Regular sugar or sugar sweetener can be substituted.

    For fruits, the suitable ones are – apple, pineapple, papaya, jackfruit, musk melon, strawberries, mango, chikku etc. Any combination is good. Chop & blend to pulp.
    BUT avoid citrus fruits & banana.

    Soft cooked rice - 1 cup (in a mixture of half milk & half water)

    Gram dhal - 1 tbsp (cook grainy & soft, not mushy)

    Sugar candy - 1 cup (or to taste)

    Fruit pulp - 1 ½ cps.

    Boil sugar candy in little water till it becomes slightly syrupy.

    Add cooked rice & dhal.

    Cook well, mashing.

    Add cardamom powder & affron.

    Finally add the fruit pulp – just mix & simmer for 2-3 mtes. Do not boil.

    Rremove & add 1 tbsp each of raisins & chopped figs shallow fried in 2 tsp ghee.

    Sprinkle powdered saffron.

    Amirtha Pongal - not one drop of ghee!

    I borrowed the name from a magazine, but prepared it differently.

    Thin variety of rice - 1 cup

    Milk + water - 3 cups

    Sugarless khoa - 1 cup

    Sugar - 1 cup (more by choice)

    Saffron - ¼ tsp

    To garnish - sliced almonds & pistas

    In a pressure pan,cook rice till very soft.

    Mash lightly & add sugar.

    When it dissolves, add grated khoa.

    Simmer till uniformly blended.

    Garnish with nuts & saffron.

    Chocolate Semiya - a delicious, easy to make dessert!!

    You can use Drinking chocolate /boost /bournvita /ovaltin.

    Pre roasted semiya is ideally used.

    Milk - 1 cup

    Semiya - ½ cup, heaped

    Sugar - 2-3 tsp

    Chocolate drink - 3-4 tsp

    Cinnamon - ½ “

    cardamoms - 2

    Boil milk with cinnamon & cardamoms, for the flvours to be absorbed.

    When it boils for 3-4 mtes, add sugar & simmer for 2 mtes.

    Add semiya, stirring well.

    Simmer till it is cooked soft.

    Sprinkle the chocolate & mix well vigorously, so that it dissolves completely.

    When the mixture is uniformly blended, remove.

    Decorate, any way you like!! You can drizzle condensed milk.

    I topped with grated white chocolate, walnuts & chocolate chips.

    Serve chilled. The consistency is one’s preference.
