How to Make Purwalankai

  • Grind the three together into a fine powder and sieve.
  • Add jaggery in 1/2 cup of water, cook to make a syrup.
  • To ensure it is properly done, drop a little syrup in water to see if it sinks. If yes, then the syrup is done.

  • Roll this mixture into small balls of required size and roll them in the remaining powder. Cool the balls and serve.
