  • Take palm jaggery, water in a sauce pan and boil till jaggery melts. Strain to a pan.
  • Now cook this till the syrup thickens it till take around 6 to 10 mins. Drop a spoonful of syrup in a bowl of cold water. the syrup will stay as it is without melting and you will be able to form a hard ball.
  • Now Take the syrup off the heat, add the syrup little by little in small amound of the rice flour. Mix well and shape it into a long shape.
  • Set aside. It will harden as it cools.

1)Don't add syrup all at once. Just add little syrup to a small portion of the rice flour and mix. Then shape it.
2)If you add all at once it will harden and you wont be able to make shape.
