- Rice Flour – 400 gms.
- Jaggery Powder -250 gms.
- Water – for steaming.
- Cardamom Powder – for decoration.
- Honey – for decoration.
Step 1 – Take rice flour in a bowl. Using lukewarm water knead a pliable dough out of it. Keep aside.
Step 2 – Now take a lump of the dough and rub your palm with some oil. Make a round shape out of the lump, then make a small hole in the middle of it and fill it with jaggery powder. Now close this hole by sticking all ends together and give it a boat like shape,thicker in the middle and tapering at the ends. You can make these in any shape you want but here I have made them in boat shape. Now grease a plate with oil and put the dumplings gently on it. Be sure to do this step otherwise the dumplings will stick to the plate and won’t lift from it.
Step 3 – Take a big size vessel and fill it half with water. Now heat the water and when it starts to boil slowly drop two to three dumplings in it. Steam them for thirty minutes or till they get a bit hardened and leave the edges of the vessel.
Step 4 -Now take them out one by one out and place them in a plate. Serve them hot and sprinkle some cinnamon powder and drizzle some honey over them.
Our steamed rice flour and jaggery dumplings are ready. Eat them hot or cold. This recipe is a famous one in northern India and mostly made in the month of January around the time of Makar Sankranti. It requires lesser ingredients and has a likeable taste.
