Green gram and rice dessert


1/2 cup green gram or mung bean or moong dal
2 cups water
1/4 cup raw rice
2 cardamom
2" cinnamon stick
pinch salt optional
1/2 cup to 1/4 cup jaggery to taste
2 tbsp coconut milk powder in 1 cup water
cashews and raisins garnish optional

Roast green gram and add water and boil. When it boils add rice, cinnamon stick, cardamom and cook. It should be well cooked and be able to mash it with the back of the spoon.
Add more water if needed and jaggery cook until water is absorbed.
Add thick coconut milk and cook for a few minutes.
Put the thick mixture on a serving plate and serve warm.

Sometimes, like in this picture amount of rice is increased to 1 cup and 1/2 cup green gram with 1/4 cup jaggery. Can serve with tamarind chutney optional if less jaggery is used.
Colour depends on how much jaggery and green gram is used.
Can use milk instead of coconut milk and brown sugar instead of jaggery. 1/2 coconut grated is used to make milk or use coconut milk powder.
