Scraped coconut - 1 cup
Crushed jaggery - 1/2 cup
Water - 2 tablespoons
Cardamom - 3
Thenkuzhal maavu - 2 tablespoons
Oil - to deep fry
Heat a kadai, add crushed jaggery and water. When the jaggery is dissolved, add the coconut and powdered cardamom. Stir for sometime till it is slightly thick. When
cool, make small balls out of it.
Prepare a thin batter using thenkuzhal maavu and water. Dip the balls in this batter and deep fry in oil till golden brown.
NOTE: Using thenkuzhal maavu gives a fantastic aroma for the sweet snack. If the batter is thick the outer cover will be hard. I prepare a thin batter and the outer cover will also be soft and melt in mouth.
