Fry rice flour in a kadai till nice aroma comes out. Fry for some 15 minutes in a low flame. Meanwhile grate the jaggery and keep ready.
Add 1/4 cup of water in a kadai and add jaggery. Boil it till nice bubbles come.
Now remove the rice flour from the stove, add grated coconut, green gram dal powder - this has to be fried and made to a powder.Now add ghee and the jaggery. Mix them well. It should not be too thin or thick.
Now make small balls like how we make for chappathis. Then keep inside the palm and just press as shown in the picture. Apply little oil in idly plates/idly cooker and arrange these in that. Keep for some 10-15 minutes.
Note: Add only 1/4 cup of water while heating jaggery beacuse jaggery will melt and become watery. So no need to add more water.
