Jaggery / Gur - 3/4 cup
Water - 2 cup
Fresh Coconut - 1 cup grated
Cardamom Powder - 2 tsp


Take jaggery and 1 cup of water in a pan. Heat it so the jaggery is melted. Now strain this and add it to the same pan.

Add in more water and mix well.

Add in ghee, cardamom powder and coconut. Bring it to a boil.

Once it boils, simmer and add in rice flour slowly and mix well so no lumps are formed. 

Now keep this cooking till it leaves the sides and comes together.

Remove this mix to a bowl and let it cool so you can handle.

Once it is cool knead once so it is smooth.

Grease your hands slightly with some oil and take small portion from it and press slightly.

quick rinse to the pan with some water

once it reaches a good boil

add a good amount of cardamom powder..Main flavouring

i like to add coconut right into the jaggery water

add some ghee, for extra aroma

It will start to leave the sides of the pan very quickly

once it is clumped together like this

remove it to a bowl and let it cool down

now knead it slightly
