Preparation Method :

  • In a bowl, combine the coconut, milk, sugar, cashew nuts, sesame seeds, poppy seeds and cardamom powder for stuffing.
  • Heat ghee in a pan over a medium heat; add the coconut mixture and cook by stirring continuously, till it reaches the consistency of soft fudge. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  • In a saucepan, combine water, salt and ghee for pastry dough and bring to a rapid boil.
  • Lower the heat, slowly add rice flour and mix with a wooden spoon until it is incorporated into the water and forms soft dough. Remove from heat and cover and set aside for 5 minutes.
  • Wet your hands and knead the still hot dough till smooth. Divide into lime-sized balls and set aside, covered with a wet piece of muslin cloth.
  • Grease ghee on a thin plastic sheet and pat each dough ball into a 3-inch round flat disc. Place a tablespoon of coconut stuffing in the centre.
  • Using your fingertips, pleat the edges of the pastry and draw them together to make a conical shape at the top, pressing together to seal the filling.
