Boil about 2 cups of water in a vessel along with the reqd salt.
Mix together the roasted rice flour and the boiled water.
Knead them well to form a dough.
Heat up a pan or a kadai.
Add coconut, jaggery, cumin seeds and cardamom.
Cook, till jaggery melts.
Allow it to cool.
Coat your hand with extra flour to prevent sticking.
Make 10 small balls off the above dough and flatten them.
Place a small quantity of the coconut mix in the middle of the flattened balls.

Repeat the procedure for the remaining balls.
Steam these balls for 10 mins.

I just needed a recipe for this thing for a UN Day celebration at school. You saved me... thank you much!
Came out very well. Little more of coconut (50% more) & jaggery (25 % more) is suggested to give better taste for those who are not very conscious of cholestrol & diabetes.
Came out perfect. Thanks for the recipie. Others please follow instructions to dust the hand with dry rice flour before making the balls EACH TIME. Unless you want a mess
