Dhodal is one of my favourite sweet. His grand mother used to make this sweet delicasy. I learnt this recipe from her and after lots of trial and error I got the perfect texture. Once you make this you will really fall in love with this recipe.

You need:
Coconut( medium)                 1 nos
Rice flour                               50gms
Sugar                                     100gms
Ghee                                      5 tbsp
Salt                                        a small pinch
Cashew nut                           10-12

Take 4 cups of milk from the coconut( including 1st and 2nd)
In a big pan mix the coconut milk, Rice flour, sugar and salt.
Dissolve it without lumps.

Heat this mixture and stir continously without forming lumps.
When the mixture starts to thicken add the ghee little by little.
Do not pour in the whole ghee, give little time gap in between adding the ghee.
Stir till it reaches halwa like consistency and the ghee seperates and the mixture starts to leave the sides of the pan.

Add the cashews and mix well, pour it into a greased bowl and allow to set.

You can refrigerate dhodal and warm it in the microwave and eat
