  • Grind it adding very little amount of water so that the batter is quite stiff.
  • Transfer it into a small cup.
  • Now grind the coconut scrapings with little water and squeeze out the coconut milk. Keep it aside in another bowl.
  • Heat another vessel with 1 / 2 cup of water in it .
  • Add jaggery and wait for the jaggery water to boil.
  • With the help of a perforated spatula, pass the thick grounded rice batter through the hole, tap it slightly with your hand so that the small rice balls will start dropping to the boiling jaggery water.
  • Steer the rice balls every now and then so as they do not stick to the vessel. If necessary, you can add little more water.
  • After a couple of minutes, add the coconut milk and cardamom powder. Leave it to boil for around five minutes

KitchenMasti Points

  1. You can add one tsp of ghee for a richer taste, but it is entirely optional
  2. When this dessert cools down, it tends to turn a little thick in consistency. In that case you can add half cup of milk to dilute it. 
  3. Roasted cashew nuts and raisins are optional.
  4. You can replace the rice flour for Maida ( all purpose flour ) and prepare the dessert as usual, but the rice flour tastes way better than maida.
  5. In case the ground rice flour becomes a little watery in texture, then you can add one tsp of rice flour to make it thick.
