Coconut Kheer

 There is this one person I know whose status messages on Facebook  are full of life and that spreads positive energy always.He writes about the food he wishes to eat , the food that hes eating too - every time its a unique menu,the variety is lovely and he never forgets to appreciate the guy who makes this spread for him :) He is a fantastic human being, a dear friend, a film maker by profession Vivek Sharma  who reaches out to people through his Blog.
One such update was about "Nariyal Kheer" - the name just got me plain inquisitive at the way he was raving about relishing it :)) I did my fair share of Google search - figured it out and made it my way.......

1/4 cup Fresh grated coconut
2 tablespoons raw rice (soaked in water)
2 cups fresh milk
A pinch of salt
3/4 cup Sugar -
A pinch of powdered cardamom
Bay leaf
Cashew nuts and raisins fried in ghee

Step 1: Grind together coconut and raw rice with the salt to a very fine paste.
Step 2: Heat milk with the bay leaf .Add the paste to the milk stirring continuously with a wire whisk, as the paste could settle down easily. Whisk until it thickens to a smooth consistency.If by any chance it turns out lumpy, pour it out in a strainer to remove lumps.
Step 3: Add sugar & cardamom powder and stir well. Quantity of sugar could be increased as appropriate. Similarly, add milk if the mixture turns out too thick. Remove bay leaf & garnish with fried cashew nuts and raisins.

Diwali - the festival of lights - signifies the triumph of good over evil !! We reiterate this fact year after year - Hope this season brings peace and prosperity to all.

We did our share of prayers at home ..Happy Diwali again.............
