One which I had planned to do , the other came
up when the filling was over.
As there is a saying “Necessity is the mother of
invention “-this chocolate and coconut had the
taste of biting into a bounty piece of chocolate.
Just little squares of Amul chocolate and a little
dessicated coconut did the trick .
So let’s get into the recipe now
2 cups rice flour / kolukattai flour
2 -3 tblsp ghee
2-3 cups hot boiling water
Salt to taste
A little tender coconut water – ( optional)
For the filling
2 cups grated coconut
Jaggery powder/country sugar to your taste
2 tblsp gram dal flour( besan)
1 tblsp rawa ( semolina)
1 tsp cardamon powder
A pinch of salt
2-3 tblsp ghee
Mix ghee into the flour with salt.
Pour boiling water and bind to a soft dough.
Cover and set aside for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes knead the dough well .
If the dough looks dry, add a little ghee and
knead to get a soft texture.
Divide into portions and keep a spoon of the
filling . Seal the edges firmly and steam for 7-10
Method for filling
Heat ghee and add the besan flour and roast
for a minute.Next add rawa , nuts. and the rest
of the ingredients, and remove from fire.

when you cut into.
