Cooking Method :

Lets begin by preparing the sweet coconut filling. Heat a glass of water in a large saucepan at medium flame, to this add 2 cups of sugar, stir well until the sugar dissolves, this could take about 5 minutes. Once the syrup thickens we can add a cup of grated coconut, 1-2 pieces of cardamom and cumin seeds. Continue sautéing until cardamom aroma emanates your kitchen.

Mean while lets prepare the rice dough. Add a glass of water into a pan under medium flame. Bring water to boil along with salt and Ghee. To this add 1 cup of Rice flour. Now switch off the stove, use a spoon to mix the dough well. Make sure that while mixing, the rice flour does not clump together. If you are finding it too dry and not sticky, then add more boiled water drop by drop, until it achieves a smooth consistency.

Once the dough is ready, grease your palms well and break off a small portion from the dough and make a soft ball. Start pinching the sides and spread the dough to make cup shaped moulds. Place the filling inside the cup shaped moulds and cover all sides to make Coconut Dumpling. Steam the Coconut Dumpling for 10 – 15 min till the outer layer is little shiny and serve them warm.

Coconut Dumplings are considered festival delicacies and can be served as an Evening snack.
