  • 1cup rice flour
  • water, as needed
  • oil , to deep fry

Directions

Dry roast the green moong dal  till nice aroma develops, cool it and grind to a course powder. make a thick
jaggery syrup by melting jaggery in little bit of water and add  cardamom powder and coconuts in it. Mix well and add powdered green gram ,combine well and make small balls out of it. Make a thick paste with rice flour adding  water and little bit salt, dip each moong dal balls into this batter and deep fry till golden brown.
