1 pound rice
1 cup coconut milk
½ pound sugar molasses (or jaggery, if you can find it)
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
1 teaspoon cardamom powder


  1. Wash the rice and spread it on a baking sheet. Put into a pre-heated 300º F oven for 15 minutes, until the rice is roasted.
  2. Grind the mixture into small grains at low speed.
  3. Boil one cup of water and add molasses, stirring until it melts and the liquid becomes brownish. Add coconut milk and continue stirring.
  4. Add the rice grains and mix well. Let the mixture dry slowly over medium heat. Transfer to a baking dish and mix in sliced almonds and cardamom powder.
  5. Bake in a 350º F oven for 15 minutes.
  6. After the Kanavli is ready, let it cool outside the oven. Cut into pieces and serve.
