To prepare

In a pressure cooker, dry roast the rice and moong dal for a few minutes until it becomes aromatic. After roasting remove from heat and transfer to a bowl and rinse them with water. Drain the rice and dal and put them in a pressure cooker. Pour in the 3 cups of water and cook on a medium flame for 12 - 15 minutes which would be about 8 - 10 whistles. While the rice and dal are cooking, chop the jaggery into small pieces and put ½ cup of water in a pan with the jaggery pieces into it. On a low to medium flame, cook until the jaggery is completely melted then strain the jaggery syrup through a sieve and set aside. Let the pressure settle down and check on the mixture. It should be fully cooked and have the consistency of a khichdi. If the mixture is still like a pulao, add half a cup of hot water and mix very well. Slightly mash the dal and rice with a wooden spoon to and set aside. Add the jaggery syrup to the dal and rice mixture and mix well by stirring in the cardamom powder. In a separate pan, heat up the ghee and fry the cashews until lightly browned. Then, add in the raisins and sauté until the raisins are nice and plump. Remove from heat and add directly to the Pongal mixture and mix well. Finally, break the Dark Fantasy biscuits into small pieces and add to the top of the Chakkara Pongal and serve.
