Tharikkanji is also known as Rava paayasam. Some call it as "Thari". Mom would make it everyday till Ramadan ends up. Adding more rava will make this thick. If you find it too thick add little more fresh milk or coconut milk and heat. You can prepare this without adding sugar also.
rava ¼ cup
coconut milk thick 1 cup
coconut milk thin 2 cup
sugar 2 tablespoon or as desired
ghee 2 tsp
chopped small onions 2 optional
How to prepare
Dry roast rawa for a while. Mix with thin coconut milk and bring to boil. Add sugar and crushed cardamoms. Stir well .When it turns thick add thick coconut milk. When it begins to boil , remove from fire. Heat ghee, roast raisins and cashew nuts and pour into the kanji. You can use chopped small onions too for seasoning. Take care while cooking rava, don't cook for a long time.
For this chop 2 small onions. Don't add sugar in the tharikkanji. Instead add enough salt. For seasoning, heat ghee, fry small onions and pour this over the kanji.
