Poppy Seed & Coconut pudding:
Heat 2 tsp of Coconut oil or Ghee or butter. In it fry 1 tbsp of brown rice & 3 tbsp poppy seeds. After about a few seconds or a minute or so it starts smelling absolutely heavenly. Now turn off stove and set the pot aside.
Have 3 cups of water ready. Take 3/4 cup of jaggery (palm sugar) in a pot. Add a little water to it and heat until it melts. Strain it and set aside. If you want to skip this step just use about 1/4 to 1/2 a cup of honey or maple syrup depending on how sweet you like your pudding.
To the fried poppy seeds and brown rice add 1/2 cup of grated fresh coconut, a little water, 3 Cardamom pods(slightly break it) and add to the blender and blend until smooth. Add this paste, remaining water, melted jaggery or honey or maple syrup to a pot and bring to a boil. Boil for a minute and turn off the stove. Pour this into cups and serve. This makes enough quantity for 4 people
