This dish is made with ground rice , or ground cooked rice,with generous amounts of
coconut milk, jaggery and channa dal .
Tastes like dodol , the addition of the dal seems a little different from other types of
sweets like this .
Well, I made this with ground cooked rice . The quality of rice has to be good .
I made with kichili samba left over rice. There you are now …left over rice can be
transformed into delicacies like this.
This can be made with soaked and ground rice too.
Choosing good jaggery is important.
Muscle power,time and patience is needed in the mixing, but worth the effort!
So ..moving on to the recipe now.
1 cup cooked rice ground fine to a paste
2 cups jaggery
3 cups second extract of coconut milk
1 cup first extract of coconut milk
1 tsp cardamom powder
1 tblsp.rice flour mixed in water/coconut milk
2-3 tablespoons channa dal soaked( kadala parippu )
A pinch of salt
5-6 tsp. Ghee
Mix coconut milk (second extract),jaggery, the rice paste and salt in a thick bottomed
pan/non stick kadai and heat . Keep stirring.
Once it get’s slightly thick , add the rice flour mix,and keep stirring .
Add a tsp. of ghee at intervals whilst cooking.
Add remaining ingredients and the thick coconut milk.
The correct consistency ,will be when you run the spatula down to the bottom of the
mixture, you should be able to see the bottom of the pan clearly .
The mixture should never stick to the pan when you transfer the mixture to a greased plate .
Allow to cool and set for 3 hours.
Cut into desired slices.
