  • Soak the Rice in water, for about an hour. Grind it to a fine paste with adequate amount of water.
  • In a vessel, pour about 1/2 cup water and melt the Jaggery. Strain this melted Jaggery into the Rice batter. Add Coconut milk and mix well.
  • The overall consistency of this mixture may be watery. In a thick-bottomed pan, add a tablespoon of ghee and pour the mixture and keep stirring it on medium heat.
  • Continue stirring as the mixture starts to solidify. It will aggregate into one mass.
  • At this point, add the Cardamom powder. Continue to mix for atleast another 20-25 minutes. Add the remaining ghee little by little, and continue to mix well.
  • The end point of this process is when the halbai has left the sides of the pan totally and the ghee has oozed out of it and is separate.
  • Allow it to cool on a greased plate and you may cut it into desired shape.
