Vishu Katta


Wish You all a Happy and prosperous Vishu! For us people from Thrissur  in Kerala Vishu is not complete without Vishu Katta for breakfast. This is my moms recipe which I have simplified without any change to the original taste.
Ingredients:
Jasmine rice/Raw rice-1 cup
Coconut Milk (thick milk)-21/4 cup + 1 cup
Cumin powder-1/4 tsp
Salt-1/4tsp or to taste
Method:
Pressure cook the rice along with 2  1/4 cups of coconut milk ,cumin powder and salt   (putting the weight on after the steam comes and cook at low  for 6 minutes ). Once the pressure is released, open the pressure cooker and add the remaining milk and stir it along with the cooked rice and cook till the coconut milk starts to leave out oil. Transfer the vishu katta to a plate and level the top with a spoon. When the Katta cools cut into desired shape.
Serve it with Jaggery syrup

For the Jaggery Syrup
Ingrdients:
Jaggery-1 cup
Water-3/4 cup
Dried ginger powder-1/8tsp
Coconut milk-1/2 tsp
Cumin powder-1/8tsp(optional)
Method:
Make a syrup using jaggery and water. Sieve the syrup and add the remaining ingredients and cook it till it just begins to boil.
