Hi Krishnaveni,
It came out really tasty, but I think I put cucumber more, so became slightly sticky, but was yum. My mother in law prepares it in a slightly different way. She brings water and jaggery to boil first and then pours rice flour, cucumber, brings it to a thick consistancy until it is half cooked and then prepares..

Hi Krishnaveni,
It really came out tasty, but I think I added little more of cucumber, so became a little sticky, but was yum.. My atthe does it in a slightly different way with rice flour. She brings jaggeryvwater to boil, then adds rice flour and brings to a thick consistancy until it is half cooked and then prepares. I am not sure when she adds cucumber and coconut. :-)
