Hey guys, here is a mouth-watering Mangalorean traditional dessert 'Manni'. Try this sweet dish, enjoy it but please don't forget to comment, like, share & SUBSCRIBE to my channel Curry for the Soul on YouTube for more such easy and delicious recipes.
This classic dessert is made out of ground rice, coconut, jaggery and flavoured with cardamom, raisins and cashew nuts.
The ingredients are simple but it requires some muscle power to stir the batter continuously, but its worth the effort as it is such a yummy, delicate and melt in the mouth dessert.
Once the batter thickens, add the dry fruits and transfer the cooked mixture to a greased steel plate to cool and set in the plate. Then cut into square or diamond shape and garnish with some more cashew nuts and raisins and enjoy.
