  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup jaggery

  • In a heavy bottom pan, dry roast the poppy seeds till light brown and fragrant.
  • Grind poppy seeds, coconut, almonds and cashew together with one cup of water to form a smooth milky liquid
  • In a kadhai, bring to boil the liquid, add jaggery and cardamom powder to it. Simmer for 5-8 minutes till thick. If you are adding coconut cream, add now and turn off the heat.
  • Let it cool, at this point, you can serve it chilled topped with roasted nuts and raisins or pour it in the popsicle moulds and freeze! Fantastic both ways.
