•    2 cups desiccated coconut, unsweetened
•    3/4 cup condensed milk
•    1 cup milk
•    2-3 small cardamoms
•    2-3 cinnamon stick, 1 inch each
•    2 cups rice flour
•    1 cup water
•    1/8 teaspoon salt
•    4 cups milk
•    1 cup sugar



Steps to make coconut filling
•    Mix coconut, condensed milk and regular milk on a nonstick pan. The mixture will be semi sticky but not runny.
•    Add cardamom and cinnamon.
•    Turn on stove and stir constantly until the mixture becomes slightly sticky.  


  Steps to make dumplings
•    Boil water. Add salt.
•    Turn off stove and add rice flour to boiling water to form a firm but soft dough. The dough should bounce back if you press with a finger.   Adjust flour accordingly.
•    Knead well for about 5 minutes.
•    Take part of the dough and roll it out as thick as a tortilla.
•    Cut out circles with a cookie cutter.
•    Place a small amount of coconut filling on each circle.
•    Brush the edges and seal tightly to form a crescent (semi-circular) shape.


Steps to cook dumplings
•    Boil 4 cups milk, cinnamon and cardamom together in a non-stick pan.
•    Add sugar and dissolve in the boiling milk.
•    Add the dumplings and cook for about 30-45 minutes in medium-low heat or until dumplings are cooked.
•    You can add more condensed milk if you have a sweet tooth. Condensed milk can be substituted for regular whole milk and sugar or jaggery.
