Inippu Aval Kozhakattai
Sweet riceflakes dumpling
Sweets and savories
(I have used the red variety poha/ aval
( I prefer to use coconut Jaggery for a fragrant aroma)
green cardamom powder
(better with the fresh)
Soak the jaggery in the water and leave it aside for half an hour
The jaggery will dissolve and the jaggery water will be ready to use. Strain this and set aside
Pulse the rice flakes till a coarse powder
Into a deep heavy bottom pan add the jaggery syrup and bring it to a boil.
When it is boiling well add the coconut and cardamom powder. Mix well.
Now, add the powdered rice flakes a little at a time and stir.
Keep mixing this mixture till it gets really thick, the water evaporates and the jaggery is blended well with the poha powder.
Set aside to cool slightly.
Lightly oil your hands and shape the mixture into conical shaped dumplings
Prepare the steamer with water and place the dumplings on the steamer plate.
Steam for 10 minutes, wait for another 10 minutes and the dessert is ready to have.
