Sweet Coconut rice (Narali Bhat)

This is a very easy to prepare sweet rice. If the rice is already cooked, it takes only 10-15 minutes to make this dish. My husband loves it.
Sweet Coconut rice.

Ingredients : 1 cup rice. 1 cup freshly grated coconut.
1 ½ cup Jaggery or sugar(Jaggery tastes better). ½ teaspoon cardamom powder.
8-10 cashew nuts pieces. Raisins. 2 ½ cup water.
2 tablespoons Ghee (clarified butter).

Preparation method :
· Wash rice and keep aside for ½ hour. Pressure cook with 2 cups of water till just done.
· Boil jaggery and ½ cup water till jaggery melts.
· Heat ghee in a big pan, fry cashew nut pieces. Remove from ghee.
· In the same ghee, add cooked rice, jaggery syrup, freshly grated coconut. Mix well and cook covered on low fire for 10 minutes. When the syrup is absorbed by rice, add fried cashew nuts, raisins, cardamom powder. Add some more ghee if desired. Mix well. Serve.
