Madgane (Konkani Dessert)

Konkani Madgane
HAPPY GUDI PADWA!  HAPPY UGADI!  May this New Year fulfill all your wishes.  Here is a traditional Konkani Kheer Madgane.  Generally this is made soaking rice.  I used rice flour instead.  Traditionally, coconut milk is used for this payasam.  But dairy milk makes it equally yummy.

Chana Dal/Split Bengal Gram - 1 1/2 tbsp
Coconut Slices - about 1 tbsp
Rice Flour - 1 tbsp heaped
Milk - 3 cups 
Cashews/Kaju - 5
Green Cardamom/Elaichi - 2 pods (seeds only)
Jaggery or Brown Sugar - 3 tbsp

1. In a thick bottomed vessel add 1 cup water, chana dal and coconut slices.   Cook till chana dal turns soft.  Add more water if required.
2. Meanwhile, mix rice flour with 1/2 cup milk in a bowl.  Mix well to avoid lumps.
3. After chana dal gets cooked, add milk.  To this add the rice flour mixed with milk.  Keep stirring.
4. Add jaggery, ground cardamom, cashew pieces and bring it to a boil.  Add more milk if required.  Creamy Madgane is ready to indulge.
