    2.Soak the jaggery in 1 ¾ cups water for 20 minutes.
    3..Strain the jaggery water
    4.Pour jaggery water in a kadai and bring it to a boil.
    5.While boiling, add grated coconut and boiled kidney beans.
    6.Slow down the fire and pour the flour and mix it briskly .
    7.Cover it for 3 to 4 minutes. Switch off the stove.
    8.Add cardamom powder,2 tsp ghee and mix the dough till soft.
    9.If need more water, we can sprinkle water while kneading.
    10.Take small amount and make a ball flatten it .
    Follow the same procedure to make everything cover it with a wet cloth to avoid dryness.
    11.Steam it till cooked. (Testing Procedure: There has to be a shine on the adai)

    Tips / Cautions:
    If the portion of Jaggery is more, during steaming the shape will loosen.
    It will break in the edges, if water content is less.
    Rice flour should be nicely fried otherwise it will never get cooked.
    Adding a pinch of salt will give u more sweet taste.
    This is a healthy dish without much Oil.
    This is an ideal evening snack too.
