Grated coconut - 1 cup
Jaggery - 1 cup
Water - 1/4 cup
Dry ginger powder/Chukku-a generous pinch
Ghee - 1tsp
Rice flour -1tsp
Finely grate the coconut,I blended this in mixi so that i get a fine shredded coconut.
Take a kadai add ghee & coconut,in medium low flame fry the coconut till slightly brown.
Mix the dry ginger powder & keep it aside
Dissolve the jaggery in water,filter it to remove any impurities.
Get back to the stove & boil the jaggery.
Take water in a small plate pour a drop of syrup into the water if you are able to form a ball then the consistency is right.Switch off the flame.
Add the coconut and mix this well.Transfer to a greased tray
Dust your hand with rice flour or grease it with ghee, while still hot try to roll them out into small tight balls.
Cool & store them in an air tight container.
a) Cardamom powder can we added for extra flavour
b) If you think its too sweet then add 3/4 cup jaggery.
c) Rolling the balls should be fast as it will dry fast.
d) Rolling in rice flour is to avoid sticking to each other.
