A sweet recipe made with Javvarisi (sago) and coconut gratings


  • Javvarisi (Sago) – 1 cup

  • Coconut Gratings – 2 tablespoons

  • Sugar – 2 to 3 teaspoons

  • Cardamom Powder – a pinch

  • Salt – 1/4 teaspoon


  • Wash the Sago in water for 2 to 3 times.  Put it in a bowl and sprinkle a handful of water.  Close with a lid and allow to soak for  30 to 45 minutes.
  • In a small bowl put the coconut gratings and add sugar and cardamom powder.  Mix well and keep it aside.
  • Now, add salt to the soaked sago and  knead it to a thick dough.  If you find it difficult to make the dough, just put the soaked sago in a mixie and run for two to three rounds and make the dough.
  • Take a lemon size dough and make a cup (like making for Modak) and put a teaspoon of coconut stuffing and close it and make a ball.  Finish all the dough like this.
  • Add the balls in the idli or kozhukattai plate and steam it for 15 minutes.
