Sooji / Semolina - 1/2 cup

( 1 cup water is enough i used extra 1/4 cup because my sooji was slightly bigger variety)
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Grated coconut - 1/4 cup
Cardamom - 8
Ghee - 1 tsp
Dry grind cardamom,coconut & sugar in a blender till its combined.Do not add water while grinding.
Dry roast sooji for 2 minutes or till rice aroma comes out,keep it aside.Do not over fry & burn them.
Boil water in a pan reduce the flame slowly add the sooji & start mixing ,make sure there are no lumps.Now add the coconut/sugar mixture & mix it well.
Cook till the mixture is dry,for this non stick pan works out best.
Switch off the flame close it with a lid & rest it till its warm to handle.
Grease your fingers with ghee & knead the dough to make sure no lumps are there & soft.
