Directions

1Heat oil in a pan on low flame, add the broken wheat and saute until toasted aroma is obtained, do not burn.
2Add 2 cup of water and let it boil. As it starts boiling, cover the pan and turn the flame on low. Let the broken wheat cook completely, stir occasionally to avoid sticking to the bottom. (if required add some more water)
3Meanwhile, chop dates, dark chocolate and crush the cardamom pods. As you notice the broken wheat is cooked, add chopped dates, cashew nuts, raisins and cardamom. Let it simmer on a low flame for 5-8 min without lid.
4As the dates get soft and cooked, add the jaggery powder and coconut milk. Mix well and simmer it for 2-3 min. Turn off the flame. Discard the cardamom pod skin
5As the pudding base is hot, add the chopped dark chocolate and mix well. Chocolate will melt in hot pudding.
6Transfer to a bowl and let it cool down, it should have a semi-thick consistency and not too tight.
