Kalkandu Bath/Pongal/Satham

First time i made this, so i made it very little and turns out yummy.
Rice - 100 gms
Kalkandu/Sugar candy - 100-125gms(depends on your sweet tooth needs)
Water - 150ml
Milk - 100ml
Cardamom - 2 nos
Ghee - 3-4 tbsp
Cashews and Raisins - few pieces

Wash the rice with water and then put rice,milk and water(you can skip milk and use water as 250 ml or skip water and use milk as 250ml ) in a cooker and cook it for 4-5 whistles or till it mushy.

Once the pressure released from cooker,open it and keep it in medium flame,then add kalkandu(may use sugar and kalkandu as 1/2: 1/2 ratio) and allow it to melt.

Once all kalkandu melts,crushed the cardamom and add it.Then roast the cashews and raisins in 1 tbsp of ghee and add it.Mix it well and add the remaining ghee and keep it in low flame for 5 mins and then switch off.

Kalkandu  Bath is ready and serve hot.
