MAY LORD GANESHA SHOWER YOU WITH SUCCESS IN ALL YOUR ENDEAVOURS
HAPPY GANESH CHATURTHI...
"Vakratunda Mahaakaaya Surjyakotee Sama Prabha Nirvighnam kuru mey Deva, Sarva Kaaryeshu Sarvadaa"
O Lord Ganesha of Large body, curved trunk, with the brilliance of a million suns, please make all my work free of obstacles, always.
Ruland Date Aluwa is a scrumptious sweets or dessert item of Sri Lanka, very simple and easy to make but loved by all. Adding date makes this dish more flavorful and a nice blend of dry fruit gives it a delightful touch. This is my offering to Lord Ganesha on this auspicious Ganesh Chaturthi.
1 cup + 1/4 tsp Semolina (rava/sooji)
2 tsps + 1/3 tsp Butter
1/2 cup Dates
1 1/2 tbsps Black Raisins
2 tbsps chopped Cashew Nuts
1/3 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 cup warm Milk
3/4 cup Dark Brown Sugar
2-3 pods of Green Cardamoms (crushed)
Soak dates in 1 cup warm milk for half an hour. Take out dates from the milk and chop roughly. Keep the milk aside.
Prepare a tray or plate by greasing with 1/3 tsp butter. Sprinkle little semolina on the greased tray. Set aside.
Dry roast semolina in a non-stick pan.
Roast till semolina turns golden in colour. Add butter and stir for a minute. Now add cashew nut, raisins, chopped daltes, vanilla and dark brown sugar in it.
Mix well and stir for 2 minutes. Now lower the heat and add milk in it. Keep stirring continuously.
Remove from heat before the mixture thickens and transfer to the greased tray. Flatten with a spatula and form a block. Let it cool. Cut into squares. Serve cold.
Offer this scrumptious sweet to Lord Ganesha and enjoy!
