Poppy seeds payasam/drink

Poppy seeds gives a distinct flavor and richness to food. It has a medicinal value. It heals most of ulcers due to excess body heat. Helps in whooping cough and also helps in getting a nice goodnight sleep.
I normally make this drink once a month to keep body cool.

Ingredients:
5-6 tsp poppy seeds soaked for 2 -3 hours
5-6 almonds soaked for 2-3 hours
1 tsp rice soaked for 2-3 hours
5-6 tsp coconut grated
2-3 cardamom
1 big lemon size Jaggery
Cashew nuts & raisins for garnish
Grind poppy seeds, almonds, rice, coconut and cardamom by adding water to fine paste. Meanwhile, boil 2 teacups of water with Jaggery.
Once the Jaggery is melted in water, add the ground paste(add water as required). and boil till the bubble comes. Stir occasionally.
Now, roast the cashew nuts and raisins and garnish.
