Mugache Kadhan

Kadhan is a traditional kokani sweet dish made out of moong dal,jaggery & coconut milk.

Traditionally it is made by roasting whole moong and then deskinning them by grinding in Jata( manual grinder,made out if stone)or food processor,it is a very lengthy process,so to make it quick now a days skinless moongdal is used.

In our home this sweet dish is usually made on janmashtami as an offering to Lord Krishna.Served along with Amboli & Moringa Leaves vegetable.

Ingredients:

1 cup Yellow Moong Dal.

1 cup Jaggery.

1 cup Thick Coconut Milk.

1 tbsp broken Cashewnuts.

1 tbsp Charoli.

1/4 tsp Cardamom Powder.

Pinch of Salt.

Method:

Roast the moong dal in a pan till it turns a light pink in colour.

Add 2 cups of water and a pinch of salt.Let it come to boil.

Cover and cook for 10 to 15 minutes,till dal is completely cooked alternately can be cooked in  pressure cooker for about 3 whistles.The moong dal should remain granular even after it is cooked,should not be completely mashed.

Once the dal is cooked add the jaggery,cashewnuts and charoli,boil it on medium heat till the jaggery is completely dissolved and blended with the dal,stirring occasionally.

Once the jaggery is dissolved, add the coconut milk and bring to a light boil.Add cardamom powder,mix well.

Happy Cooking!!!
