When I was in school, my mom used to make some snack or the other every evening. This was one of my favourites and here is a step by step instruction of how to make this delectable treat.
Green Gram: 2 cups
Jaggerry: 400 gm
Coconut grated: 4 cups
Salt: as required
Cardamom Powder: 1 tbsp
Maida: 1 cup
Oil: for deep frying
In a pressure cooker, cook the green gram till soft (four whistles on high flame)
When it reaches one thread consistency, add the green gram and required salt.
Add the cardamom powder and mix everything on low flame for a few minutes till it reaches the consistency where you can make balls out of it.
Allow it to cool and then make balls out of it
Mix the maida with water to get a batter(the consistency should be that of Dosa Batter)
Dip each ball in the batter and deep fry in oil
