This is made using either Moong dal or Green gram.
If you are using Moong dal, then slightly dry roast the Moong dal and then soak in water for an hour. Roasting gives a nice flavour.
In this post, I used Green gram.


Green gram------------------- 1 cup ( soaked in water for an hr and pressure cook it)
Jaggery------------------------ 2 large pieces
Water-------------------------- 1/2 cup
Cardamom powder---------- a pinch
Grated coconut--------------  1 cup
Ghee---------------------------- 1 tbsp
Oil------------------------------- for frying
All purpose flour(Maida)-- 1 cup
Baking powder---------------  1/2 tsp
Rice flour----------------------  2 tsp
Salt------------------------------ a pinch (or to taste)

  1. Boil the green gram and drain it.
  2. In a medium heat pan add a tbsp of ghee and roast the grated coconut to slightly golden brown.
  3. Melt jaggery in 1/2 cup of boiling water.
  4. Now, mix in the roasted coconut and melted jaggery in a bowl. Add cardamom powder to it.
  5. Next, in a flat pan stir in cooked green gram and coconut and jaggery mixture. Bring the heat to medium high and keep stirring, till all water is evaporated .
  6. Let it cool. Then make balls or dumplings .
  7. Now prepare the batter. For this, mix Maida, rice flour , baking powder and salt. Then add needed water and mix it without lumps. The batter should be thick.
  8. Next, dip each dumpling in the batter and fry in oil till the colour changes to slight golden brown. Do this in medium heat.
