I still remember those school days where i used to run back home from school ,expecting my mom to make something or other for snack special :)... This sweet dumpling was one of the commonest which she used to make and my fav too.. Its been quiet a long time i made these.. last day i was craving for these and i couldnt stop myself from making this :).. so here goes the recipe to all :)
Rice Flour - 2 cups
Coconut - 1 cup
Jaggery - 3/4 cup
Cardamom powder - almost 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 2 tsp (you can roughly powder if you want)
I had the jaggery in cubes, so i grated them. Then with hand mix all the ingredients nicely for the filling and keep aside.
For the outer covering, boil water and once boiled, pour over the rice flour (add salt to it before) and keep mixing with a spoon till you get a rough made dough. Keep it to cool down. Then with hand mix the flour to a dough and then make medium balls like as you would make for a chappathi. Now flatten with the tip of your fingers so that roundball is now like a circle. Place a spoonful of filling inside and cover the dough. Repaet the process for the whole. In case if the dough is too sticky. dip ypur hands in cold water and spread the balls. Steam cook in pressure cooker till done (of course w/o the weight). Roughly about 15-20 mins will be needed. Have hot with a cup of tea..its will divine :)
