Prasadam-----------Akki Halbai /HaluBave (Special Mangalore Sweet)


This recipe is very speciality of Mangalore cuisine.This is prepared specially on the Nagar panchami day as a prasadam .this is a very tasty,authentic and healthy sweet.At least once a year we prepare this sweet.Usually it is little really a hard sweet to make,but i learned many tips from my mom and mother-in-law and can prepare this sweet quite easily.Basically its a rice,coconut and jaggary halwa but serve as burfi form.It is such a sweet which if consumed more also won't feel like your are stuffed with sweet and won't harm your stomach too.
This is my hubby's favourite.Kids love them too.

Servings:20-30 pieces

Ingredients:
1 cup Akki (raw rice(sonamasuri)
3/4 cup fresh grated coconut
1 cup jaggary
2 tsp broken cashew pieces
3 tbsp ghee
1 tsp cardamon powder

Method:

Soak raw rice for 1-2 hours.

Grate jaggary and coconut.here i have used frozen grated coconut.
Make cardamon powder and keep it ready.
Ground together rice and coconut adding little water into smooth paste.

Take a pan add jaggary and very little water( approximately 1 tbsp),so that jaggary melts properly.
When jaggary mixture starts to boil add rice-coconut paste and stir them properly.

Keep stirring continuously and putting ghee in intervals stir the mixture till the rice mixture leaves the sides of the pan.

Now finally add cardamon powder and stir them thoroughly.Finally when mixture becomes like a ball at the centre of the pan ,switch off the flame and spread this sweet on the greased plate.

Decorate the sweet with broken cashews.cut the halwa com burfi into square or diamond or any shape you like.This sweet comes harder than halwa and softer than burfi.

Keep in front of the god as prasadam and distribute among your friends and family.
While serving it as sweet serve them poring little ghee on top for richer taste.
