Wash the rice and soak it for half an hour in a little water. Dry roast the Moong Dhal lightly in a pan and take down. Boil 3 cups of water and the salt in a vessel and when boiling add the rice and the roasted Moong Dhal. Cook on low heat till the rice and dhal are soft. Add the coconut, sugar/ jaggery and raisins and simmer for 4 to 5 minutes. The Congee / Kunji should be of the consistency of thick soup.
