Poovada

HAPPY ONAM TO ALL
Ingredients

Rice Flour (Ari Podi/Pathiri Podi): 1 cup
Water: 1 ¼ cups
Grated Coconut: 2 cups ( Approx)
Grated Jaggery: 1 cup (Approx.)
Salt: needed               
Method Of Preparation
In a bowl add water and enough salt and put on flame.
When water boils add rice flour to it and stir well and lower the flame and continue stirring for 2 minutes and switch off the flame.
When it is slightly cooled knead well without lumps. Take time and knead it well till you get it very soft.
Take lemon sized balls from it and roll to 1/2 “ thick chappathi (you can use pathiri press to make this)
Take the chappathi and keep on your palm and add little grated coconut and little jaggery to it.
Fold it into a crescent  shape (fold into half) and seal the edges and make impression with fingers at the sealed edges ( you also get poovada maker in the market).
Do the same process with the rest of the dough.
Take the steamer and arrange the prepared poovadas and steam to about 10-15 minutes.
Switch off the flame and open the steamer and take out the poovadas only after it is slightly cooled so that you can get it neatly.
OR you can also deep fry the poovadas in oil.
