Dry roast the Idli Rice/Puzhungal Arisi in a heavy bottomed kadai.

The rice will turn to beautiful golden brown color. At that time switch off the stove and transfer it to a plate. Keep stirring the rice when roasting to avoid it from burning.

Cool the roasted rice and then add it to the blender. Grind the rice to powder; it should not be very coarse or very fine. Keep the ground rice powder aside.

Heat 1 cup of water and jaggery in a sauce pan. Keep stirring and wait until the jaggery completely dissolves. Now switch off the stove and strain it through a steel strainer to get rid of impurities. Keep the jaggery water aside.

In the same kadai, add 2 tsp of ghee and fry the chopped cashew nuts to golden brown color.

Now add the filtered jaggery water + 1 cup of water to the kadai.

Add dry ginger powder, cardamom powder, one small pinch of salt to the kadai and let it come to one boil.

At this stage, add the ground rice powder and keep stirring continuously on low flame. Keep stirring to avoid forming any lumps.

Let the rice powder cook in the jaggery water and when done and all the water absorbed switch off the stove.

Let the mixture cool down a little. Grease hand with little oil and make small balls.

Similarly make balls with rest of all the mixture.
