  • Bottle guard – 3/4th size cut
  • Coconut – 1/2 grated

Take the grated coconut in a mixer, add a little water and grind fine. Pour the coconut on a strainer and remove the milk. Keep this aside.

Repeat the process twice and remove the milk in a small cooker.

Fry cashew pieces in ghee and keep it aside.

Finely chop the bottle guard into tiny pieces. Add it to the small cooker with the coconut milk. Sprinkle a pinch of salt and cook it for 2 whistles. Once the pressure is released, add the jagerry and bring it to boil. If the consistency is too watery, dissolve one TSP of wheat flour in a TSP of milk or coconut milk and add it to the cooker.

Now add the first extracted milk kept aside and powdered elaichi. Add the fried cashews and switch off the flame.
