Recipe
1
Soak 500 grams of rice overnight. Drain the water and spread the rice on a cloth to dry.
2
Once the rice is dry, grind it into a fine powder.
3
In a pan, heat 1 tablespoon of ghee. Add 200 grams of grated coconut and 150 grams of jaggery. Cook until the jaggery melts and the mixture thickens.
4
Let the coconut-jaggery mixture cool. This will be the filling for the pithe.
5
In a bowl, mix the rice flour with a pinch of salt and enough water to make a dough. The dough should be firm but pliable.
6
Divide the dough into small balls. Flatten each ball and place a spoonful of the coconut-jaggery filling in the center. Fold the dough over the filling and seal the edges.
7
Heat oil for deep frying. Fry the pithe until they are golden brown.
8
Drain the pithe on paper towels to remove excess oil. Serve warm.
