Sweet Khichidi

I was surprised to see everyone having this khichidi for breakfast at my MIL's place. This surely is a good dish but sweet for breakfast??? I dont think I can ever have such dishes early in the morning. Even today my hubby had this with urad dosa !!!

1/2 cup chana dal
1/2 cup broken wheat
10-15 cashews
2 cup sugar
1/2 cup grater coconut
2 table spoons ghee (optional)

Cook chana dal, broken wheat and cashews in a pressure cooker for 7-10 mins.
In a kadai, add little water to sugar and make a syrup. The consistency of this syrup should be thick.
Add cooked dal and wheat to this syrup. Keep stiring.
You can see this mixture becomes thicker and sticky, add raisins, cardamom and grated coconut.
Pour ghee on top and serve hot.

Serves: 3
Preparation Time: 25 mins

Note: This is typically eaten with neer dosa or any other dosa. But for me, this is equivalent to a dessert after lunch/dinner.
