Rice: 1250g (approx. 6 cups)
jaggery, cut into pieces: 1 kg
sesame seeds: 50g
ghee or butter: 1 1/2 kg
1.Wash the rice once and soak them in water for 24 hours. Drain water and grind to a fine flour. Sieve the flour and keep aside.
2.Take jaggery pieces into a deep pan or cooker. Add 1 1/2 glass of water and bring to a boil. Boil the jaggery until it gets thick consistency (Take some water in a plate and pour some of the boiled jaggery to it. Roll with your finger. When it forms into a ball shape, it is done)
3.Remove from heat when it is done. Mix well by adding small amounts of flour to it. Take care so that no lumps can be formed. Add 3-4 tbsp of ghee to the flour mixture and keep aside.
4.Heat ghee in another pan. Make small balls from the jaggery mixture.
5.Apply ghee to a polythene cover, place a ball in the middle and press with your fingers to a circle. Also apply few sesame seeds on both sides.
6.Repeat this process for the remaining balls and deep fry in ghee until golden brown in color and crispy.
7.Place them in an air-tight container. These will long for so many days.
