Method of preparation:

Boil 1 cup of water. Add rice flour and mix thoroughly without any big lumps.
Cool it down to room temperature and knead it into soft dough.

Take 1/4th of rice dough and mix it well with some milk into thick running paste.
With the remaining rice dough do the following
Make 1/2 inch balls using your palms.
You can also make 1-2 inch long cylinders out of the rice dough.

Boil milk until it gets hot.
Add the thick paste we made out of 1/4th of the rice dough.
Boil it for 3 minutes and then add the rice flour balls or cylinders or both.
Let them boil till float and then remove from heat.
Now add jaggery and mix well.

Notes: To make this more flowy, add more milk. Garnish with cardamom powder if you like.
