Gase Gase(Poppy Seeds) Payasa

Ingredients:
1/4 cup White Rice
1/4 cup Poppy Seeds /  Gase Gase
1.5 cups grated Coconut
1/4 cup Almonds
1/4 cup broken Cashew Nuts
3 - 4 Cardamom
3  cups Jaggary
2 tsp Raisins
1/2 tsp Ghee
Pinch of Salt

Recipe:
Soak poppy seeds and white rice in water for about 5-6 hrs. Soak the almonds in warm water for about 5-6 hrs.

Drain the water content and keep the soaked poppy seeds and rice aside. Remove the outer skin of almonds and keep them aside.

Grind fresh/frozen grated coconut, soaked poppy seeds, rice and cardamom seeds into smooth paste by adding required amount of water. (If it is frozen coconut use hot water while grinding.) Add the almonds, cashew nuts and grind them together for few seconds.

Add required amount of water and mix well.(The consistency should be like that of milk.) Add jaggary, mix well and bring it to boil. Keep the Payasa in low flame for about 5-8 mins until jaggary dissolves and the consistency of the Payasa is like that of milkshake.

Put 1/2 tsp ghee in a pan and heat. Add raisins and fry them in low flame until they puff. Add this to Payasa and mix well. Serve it hot or chilled.
