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.
