Method:

1) Mix rice and Split moong dal together, wash well for 3 times and pressure cook in cooker with water till cooked.
2) Meanwhile, in a non-stick pan , add ghee and fry cashews till they turn golden in color. Then fry raisins and keep aside.
3) In a bowl add milk . Leave the milk on the stove for some time on a medium flame until the milk boils .
4) Later add the cooked rice and dal mixture to the boiling milk and mix very well. Keep stirring now and then so it doesn't stick to pan.
