  • 1 cup rice flakes (I have used the red variety poha/ aval)
  • 1/2 cup jaggery ( I prefer to use coconut Jaggery for a fragrant aroma)
  • 1.5 cups drinking water
  • 1/2 tsp green cardamom powder
  • 1/4 cup grated coconut (Freshly grated)


  • 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.
