Overheard my dad talking to my mom about this classic, Traditional Indian dessert, so I just had to make it for him and the family today. The smile on his face was pricelessπŸ’–

5 elachi (freshly roasted and ground)
A few cinnamon sticks
1 Star Anise
1 can condensed milk

1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 tsp salt
Boil rice for 10 in water until bubbling.
Wash thoroughly and return rice to stove.
Add milk, spices, bring to the boil and reduce heat to a low simmer.
One milk is almost completely absorbed into rice and rice is soft, add coconut cream and condensed milk.
