Preparation: Boil water in a wok ( Use water twice the volume of suji ). Add the suji and salt to the boiling water and keep stirring continously to avoid formation of lumps. Remove from fire once the water is completely absorbed and the suji forms a solid lump.

Allow to cool down a bit. Knead the suji into a smooth dough. The kneading should be done when the suji is still hot ( should have a tolearble temperature ).

Add sugar and cardamon powder to the grated coconut.Mix well.

Break the dough into small balls. Flatten the balls into small rotis. Stuff with the coconut mixture. Shape into small balls.

Boil water in a deep vessel. Place the suji balls on an idli stand. Put inside the vessel and cover tightly with a lid. Allow to steam for 10-12 mins.

Remove from the vessel and serve hot.

It can also be served as low calorie snack as it does not use any oil.
