1/2 cup grated Fresh Coconut.
2 tbsp Ghee
1 tsp Elaichi powder
1/8 tsp Haldi ( Turmeric powder )
1/2 tsp Ginger grated
Small pinch of Salt
2 cups Water.
Heat ghee in a thick bottom pan,roast the rawa till it turns light brown in colour.Keep aside.
In the same pan,boil 2 cups of water,add jaggery,grated coconut,ginger,haldi powder,elaichi powder and salt.Boil till jaggery melts completely.
Add roasted rava and mix well,cover and cook till rava absorbs all the water.
Grease a plate with ghee.
Transfer the cooked mixture in the greased plate.
