Raagi - Nendra Bale Halva

Ragi ( Millet ) - Nendra Bale (a kind of banana which has very good
qualities and used mostly in Dakshina Kannada and Kerala side) Combination halva is a tasty and yemmy sweet dish. I tried this sweet dish with jaggery and it has come out very well and tasty. It is easy to prepare and we can have them as snack too.
Things Needed : 
Raagi : 2 Cups
Nendra Bale Hannu : 1
Jaggery :  3/4 Cup
Ghee : 1/4 Cup
Coconut : 2 Table spoons
Cardamom : 5 to 6 pods
Water : 1  cup.
Method :
1. Roast Raagi for 2 to 3 minutes and put it in a bowl.
2. Keep jaggery on the fire and put little water and heat. Let it turn into liquid. Now take a stainer and staine jaggery liquid into raagi bowl.
3. Powder cardamom and keep it aside.
4. Smash Nendra Bale and put it with raagi. Now mix all the ingredients nicely. (raagi, jaggery, coconut and nendra bale).
5. Keep a pan on the fire and put the raagi mixture in the pan and start stirring. Add 2 table spoons of ghee.
6. Stir this mixture util it starts leaving the frying pan. Stir for another 2 to 3 minutes.
7. Now add remaining ghee, cardamom powder and mix it nicely and pour it to the tray.
8. Cut Raagi -Nendra bale halva according to your wish when it is slightly cool
Note : Must stir the mixture continuously so that it does not get burnt. You can add more ghee if you wish. Add water when you are preparing jaggery syrup. Coconut can be  roasted and then added. ( or it is an optional too).  You can grind coconut with little wate and then add all the ingredients with ground coconut also.
Time : 20 minutes.
2 to 25 pieces can be made
