1 cup grated cucumber,
1 cup fresh coconut, grated,
1/2 cup jaggery,
Ghee for frying,
Rava or suji (semolina) as per requirement for binding,
Dry fruits, crushed,
1/2 tsp elaichi powder (green cardamom powder),
A pinch of salt.
Mix cucumber, jaggery, coconut till the jaggery dissolves. Then add suji, mix well and keep aside so that suji absorbs the juices well.
After half an hour grease a cake mould or any other utensil with ghee and drop this mixture into it. Use a spoon the flatten and level the batter in the mould. Now steam this batter for 10-15 minutes in a pressure cooker. When the temperature drops down, remove the mould from the cooker and cut small wadis/pieces of the cake. When they cool down, transfer each wadi carefully in a plate. Meanwhile heat some ghee in a frying pan and fry these wadis till they turn golden brown.
