Green gram- 3/4 cup
Ghee- 1/4 cup
Broken cashew nuts- 2 tbsp
Shredded coconut- 2 handfuls
Jaggery- 3/4 cup
Cardamom powder- 1 tsp
Salt- a pinch
Soak the green gram in enough water for 1 hour, drain the
water and then grind it coarsely with a pinch of salt. Put it in a
greased plate and steam it for 10 minutes. Heat a kadai and
pour the ghee. Fry the cashew nuts to golden brown colour and
take away them. Then add the green gram mixture and fry it on
slow fire in the ghee until it turns like bread crumbs and soft.
Now add the shredded coconut and fry for a few minutes.
Simultaneously make thick syrup with the jaggery. If you pour
a drop in a cup of water, you must be able to make it in to a
soft ball. That is the correct consistency. Pour this to the green
gram mixture with the cardamom powder and mix well on the
slow fire for a few seconds.
