Kanji Vellam Halwa / Rice Soup Halwa

I have been seeing the neglected comments and unanswered queries here since few days... please bear with me, I have a big reason for that.. A great loss in my life, my uppa (father) left us.. I don't know what to write here and was trying to hide.. But I love this little space in net and that took me back.. I would cook nothing special nowadays and this one was in the draft.. This is mom's preparation and I hope you are going to love this.. If you have doubts regarding this recipe please ask through the comment section. Insha Allah will try to answer ...

Ingredients needed,
kanji vellam thick (Rice Soup) 4 cups
coconut grated 1 coconut
jaggery 6 big blocks
rice powder 1 cup
cardamom powder 1 tsp
cashews and raisins few

How Mom Prepared It,
Take coconut milk from one coconut by blending grated coconut with enough water.
Take thick coconut milk and mix this with kanji vellam.
Take this together in a heavy bottomed vessel and place on stove top.
Allow to boil stirring occasionally.
Then add jaggery blocks, allow to melt it completely by stirring occasionally.
Then add rice powder mixed with little more kanjivellam.
Add cardamom powder and stir continuously.
When this turns thick and reaches a string consistency add cashews and raisins.
Grease a pan using ghee, transfer the contents into that.
Allow to cool.
Cut into desired shapes, enjoy with tea!
