Ingredients

  • 1 cup - yellow moong dal
  • 1 cup - white Rice
  • 1-2 tbsp - dry/desiccated coconut, grated/powdered (Kobbari/copra)
  • 1.5- 2 cups - sugar/jaggery
  • 1/2 tsp - Cardamom powder
  • 1/2 tsp - black peppercorns, coarsely crushed (optional)
  • 2 cups - Milk (optional)
  • 1 tbsp - cashews and Raisins
  • 1-2 tbsp - Ghee/clarified Butter
  • A pinch of Turmeric
  • How to Make Huggi:

    1. Dry roast yellow moong dal for a couple of minutes or until it changes colour slightly.
    2. Wash white rice and combine with the roasted dal.
    3. Add crushed pepper and turmeric.
    4. Add about 3.5-4 cups of water. (At this point, you could substitute half the quantity of water with milk - about 2 cups of milk and 1.5-2 cups of water).
    5. Pressure cook the rice - dal mixture until done. Do not worry if it gets over cooked.
    6. Take the sugar/jaggery in a pan.
    7. Add enough water to just cover it, boil on low-medium heat until it has dissolved.
    8. Add the dal-rice mixture, copra and half the ghee.
    9. Mix well and remove from fire.
    10. Heat 1 tsp of ghee and roast the raisins and cashews until golden brown.
    11. Add to huggi and mix well.
    12. Serve hot, topped with a generous dollop of ghee.
