Raw Rice 1 cup
Grated Coconut 1 cup
Jaggery (grated/ pound) 1 1/2 cup
Green Cardamom 3
Ghee 1 tbsp
Method of preparation:
Bruise the cardamom for the seeds and mash them lightly.
Grind rice into somewhat fine powder using a blender.
Then add grated coconut, a cup or two of water and give it a quick blend using the blender.
Heat a non stick pan on medium-low heat, add ghee and ground rice coconut paste.
Add grated jaggery, cardamom powder and frequently stir the mixture until all the water evaporates.
Grease a plate with ghee, add the reduced mixture and spread evenly about 1/2 inch thick.
Let it cool down and then cut into required shape and serve.
Notes: Some people soak the rice for 12 hours before grinding it with coconut.
