Annarse Recipe Card


Hindi: chawal
How many times have we thought rice is a blessing? We use it for holy purposes but we also can pressure up a quick pulao or khichdi when hunger pangs are drumming away! This is one grain that is about 98% percent digestible. In India we are familiar with Basmati, Patna or brown rice but it is also available as Italian Rice and Glutinous Rice which is popular in Chinese and Japanese cuisines.

  • Rice 500 grams

  • Ghee 50 grams + to deep fry

  • Milk as required

Wash and soak rice for three consecutive days taking care to change the water daily. On the fourth day drain, spread on a towel and keep it for drying in the shade.

Once the rice is totally dried, make a fine powder and sieve through a fine sieve. Add powdered sugar/grated jaggery and ghee and mix well.
