Wash and Soak the rice about 10-15 minutes then filter the water and keep it until the water dries up.

Meanwhile, boil 1 cup of water and add jaggery. Continue to simmer until jaggery melts completely. Once it has done filter the jaggery juice and keep it aside.
Heat ghee with a medium flame, once hot add moong dal, coconut, and fry until it turns the color.
