The winter season calls for a variety of dishes that can be prepared with jaggery or gur. Most of us have seen our moms preparing barfis and other desserts with gur when the temperature dips. Well, that's because gur carries a wide range of health benefits and helps the body stay warm. One such traditional winter delight is gur ke chawal or meethe chawal. It is basically a popular sweet rice dish cooked with jaggery, a healthy alternative to sugar. So, if you are planning to make it this winter season, do refer to the tips provided by celebrity chef Kunal Kapur in his latest Instagram Reels.
Chef Kunal posted the Reels under the title “Kunal's Tips & Tricks” and shared some important points that can help you prepare a perfect plate of gur ke chawal.
Chef Kunal Kapur shared the following tips:
1) While preparing gur ke chawal, at times, you'll notice that the rice has utilised all the water and becomes sticky. And, the rice also gets hard. So how to fix it? Take some lukewarm water and put it over rice. Now, cover it with a lid and cook the rice for about 5-7 minutes on low flame.
2) Once you put rice into the mixture to prepare gur ke chawal, do not use a spoon to stir it. If you really want to blend the ingredients together, all you can do is swirl the pan a little bit.
3) Are you a fan of dry fruits? Feel free to experiment here, then. You can add dry fruits of your choice and enjoy.
