How to cook?
  1. In a  kadai dry roast the dal and rice till they become hot and wash well. Add milk and pressure cook them in a cooker up to 4 or 5 whistles. The vessel that has the rice and dal with milk should be large enough to avoid the milk foaming out of the vessel while cooking.
  2. Mean while add a cup of water and boil the jaggery till it dissolves well. When it starts boiling filter it to remove the dusts and keep aside.
