As I had mentioned earlier many times, I like to discuss food with V’s grandmother. She is almost 85+ years old now, but has this great interest in food. What surprises me is, though she cannot cook now, she loves to learn new dishes. She also loves to give me her own recipes. This is one such recipe I got from her. V remembers eating it as a kid when she made it for him. Then it was totally forgotten. Isn’t it nice to dig such dishes?
1 cup fresh/frozen coconut
1 cup rice rava
3-4 tbl spn jaggery
1/4 cup (approx) milk
A pinch salt
Grind together coconut, jaggery and milk. Add rava. Keep aside for about 15mins.
Pour the mixture in cooker vessel(you can even use a idli stand).
Steam like idlis till done.
Serves : 3-4
Preparation time : 30mins
PS: You can directly use idli rava for this. Or else, soak rice in water for 2-3 hours. Drain the water completely. Spread on a cloth to remove any extra water. Now grind to a coarse consistency.
