  • Add jaggery powder and cardamom powder and run the mixer for few seconds till the mixture is well mixed.
  • For Covering:
  • Sift the rice flour to ensure that there are no lumps. Boil 4 cups of water with 1 tsp salt and 2 tsps of oil (preferably gingili oil) remove from fire. Add 2 cups of flour, stirring the mixture well with a wooden stick or the handle of a wooden spoon or churner, to make a smooth lump.
  • Continue to add more rice flour, 1/2 cup at a time and mix till you have a smooth, soft ball which is not sticky.

  • Fold it half and steam it in a steamer for 10 mins.
