Cracked Wheat Payasam

There are many versions for Cracked wheat payasam. Some prepare using milk, and some use both milk and coconut milk. I prefer to use only the coconut milk while preparing this payasam. It really gives a good taste and aroma. This payasam can be prepared very quickly too.

1/2 cup Cracked wheat (I used Bulgur, medium coarse)
1/2 cup Jaggery powdered
1 cup thick Coconut milk 
1/4 tsp Cardamom powder 
2 cups Water 
2 tbsp Cashew/Raisins 

In a pressure cooker, add the cracked wheat and water.Cook for 2 whistles.
Meanwhile, roast the cashews and raisins in ghee and keep aside.
When the pressure is released from the cooker, open the lid. Now switch on the stove on medium flame.
Add jaggery to the cracked wheat and mix well. Now add coconut milk.
Mix well and stir until it reaches the consistency you desire.
(Take care that it doesn't stick to the bottom.I cooked it for about 10-12mins)
Finally add the cardamom powder and mix well. Sprinkle the cashews and raisins on top.
