How to make  Rice and Lentils Jagerry Kheer ?

Heat a pressure pan or cooker with two teaspoons of ghee.
Fry the rice and lentils in medium flame till nice aroma comes and the colour changes.
Pour 400 ml of milk into it and mix well.
Close it with a lid. When steam comes out with force put the weight. Keep the flame to minimum or low.
In the remaining 100 ml milk soak the saffron strings and keep aside.
Let it cook in that mode for exactly 30 minutes. Switch off the stove.

Mean while add  the jagerry powder in a cup of water and boil till they dissolve well. When the mix starts boiling filter it to remove the dirts and keep aside.
After 5 minutes remove the lid and mash the stuff well with a ladle. 
Pour the jagerry syrup in to it with cardamom powder and mix well. Switch on the stove and allow to boil for few seconds in medium flame. 
Since the milk is there already the jagerry should not be allowed to boil with milk for more . Switch off the stove.

Add the extra cup milk kept aside to it with saffron strings to the lentils and jagerry mix.  Garnish it with roasted nuts and coconut.
The Kheer is ready now.
