  • 1/4 cup - coconut, grated
  • 3/4 cup - jaggery, ground
  • 2 tbsp - water
  • 1 tsp - Cardamom powder
  • 1 tsp - clarified butter/ghee
  • 1 tbsp - Rice flour (optional)
  • How to Make Kamarkattu - Coconut Jaggery Balls:

    1. Heat ghee in a wok and roast the grated coconut till slightly brown in color. Keep aside.
    2. Heat jaggery in the same wok along with water. Melt the jaggery and strain to remove the impurities.
    3. Again heat the jaggery syrup on low heat till it becomes frothy.
    4. After few minutes, pour a drop of syrup in a plateful of water. You should be able to roll that drop. If it doesn't reach that consistency cook a few minutes more.
