now add the drained rice saute for few seconds
then add 2 cups of water and 2 cups of  milk
put the lid and cook for 3 or 4 whistles.if u r not using cooker then cook until rice is soft and the texture become thick.
 then turn off the stove.until few mins we can't open the  pressure cooker lid. then add cold water on the top of the lid and remove the whistle thus the remaining  pressure will be go, it is easy to open the lid.turn on the stove.add jaggery and remaining milk to it.

now add cardamom powder ,stir well.
