Rice flour - 2 cups
Urad dhal powder - 2 tsp.
Crushed jaggery - 1 1/2 cup
Butter - 2 tablespoons
Coconut pieces - 2 tablespoons
Oil - 1 cup
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp.


Prepare rice flour and urad dhal powder as mentioned in this link.

Sieve well. Dry roast rice flour until hot and light brown.

Cut coconut into small pieces. Crush jaggery, dissolve in little water and strain it without any dust, dirt or mud. Heat jaggery and make a syrup of  soft ball consistency. (Sugar syrup consistency - detailed post is here). Add all other ingredients except oil and stir without any lumps.

Heat oil in a kadai. The heat should be medium. Fry 5- 6 balls at a time until golden brown.
