Step 1

Soak the rice for 3 hrs and drain it.

Step 2

Grind it to a powder.

Step 3

Grind coarsely the grated coconut.

Step 4

:- If using dessicated coconut, you can directly grind it. If using fresh coconut, which is tastier, first fry it in a pan, without oil, so that the water is evaporated.

Step 5

Gently heat the rice powder in a pan or a kadai for about 4 mins.

Step 6

When cooled, knead all the ingredients together and make small balls by rolling inside the palm gently.

Step 7

Heat oil in a china dish and put the balls and fry till lightly brown, on low fire.

Step 8

Drain and keep in airtight container when cool.

Step 9

:- Do not use fresh coconut as such, without frying, because it may spurt when you drop in hot oil.
