Bella Anna or Jaggery rice

Bella anna or jaggery rice is served as a prasadam (offering) in Banashankari temple. Since the goddess is also called as Gudanna preetamanasa (one who likes jaggery rice), I thought I would make this dish for naivedya today. The rice is very simple to prepare. And the preparation is a breeze. It takes only a  handful of ingredients and the taste is just divine. Try this dish and it will be liked by adults and kids alike.

Bella anna or Jaggery rice recipe:
Preparation time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 15mins
Serves- 2


Cooked Rice- 1 cup
Jaggery- 3/4th cup
Dry coconut- 1/2 cup
Cardamom- 2 powdered

  • In a thick bottomed pan, heat a cup of water. When the water begins to boil, add the jaggery stir till it melts.
