This is My Last recipe for this Event. Thanks to Manju for giving me a wonderful opportunity to share my recipes in her Blog and thanks to all Bloggers who commented for my recipes.

Iyengar Famous Akkaravadisal is the yummiest recipe and  I dedicate this recipe to my family :) Akkaravadisal is prepared on 27th day of Margazhi month ( Koodaraivalli) and offered to Lord Krishna. In 27th Poem of Thiruppavai , Lord Andal says " Mooda nei peidhu Muzhangai vazhivaara ".So, we prepare this recipe with lots of ghee.

Moong Dal - 1/2 cup

Golden Raisin - 10
Ghee - 5 tbsp.
Saffron - a pinch (Optional)
Edible Camphor - a pinch (Optional)
Milk - 1 cup ( Boil until it reduces to 1/4 cup, Rabadi) (Optional)

Method of Preparation

  • Dry roast the rice and dal until it becomes slightly brown color.
  •  Soak it in milk for 1 hour.
  • Add jaggery and water. Boil until it melts completely. Strain the dust.
  •  Pressure cook the soaked rice and  dal with milk until it cooked well. (4 whistle)
  • Once it is cooked, mash it well .
  •  In a pan add 1 tbsp. of ghee, roast cardamom, cashews and raisin. Add to the rice mixture.
  • Add Jaggery water, saffron edible camphor and remaining ghee. Mix well again.
  •  Add rabadi and mix well. But it is purely optional. I didn't use it.
