Hayagreeva or Maddi

Ingredients to make Hayagreeva or Maddi

  • Split Bengal gram/ kadale bele/ channa dal- 2 ½ cup
  • Jaggery grated- 3 cups
  • Cardamom powder -1 tbsp
  • Grated Dry kopra-1 cup
  • Water – 1 cup
  • Ghee-1/4 cup
  • Dry fruits of choice-1/4 cup

How to make Hayagreeva or Maddi

  1. Soak the split Bengal gram for 2 hours. Pressure cook with little water for four whistles. Sieve the water and keep the cooked dal aside.
  2. Take a deep sauce pan, add little ghee and once the ghee is hot enough, add the dry fruits and sauté well. Keep this aside.
  3. In the same pan, add the grated jaggery, water and start boiling until slightly single thread consistency is achieved.
  4. To this add the cooked dal, mix well. Now add the dry kopra, dry fruits and cardamom powder. Mix well.
  5. Cook the mixture well to get the thick consistency. Add the remaining ghee on top and mix once. Serve hot with extra ghee if required.
My Tip: After adding dal into the jaggery syrup, dal stops cooking. Therefore dal should not be completely mashed or underdone during pressure cooking to get the right consistency of hayagreeva. The water sieved from cooked dal can be used to prepare tasty rasaam.
