Boiled rice - 500 gm
Jaggery - 500 gm
Channa dhal - 200 gm
Green gram dhal - 200 gm
Wheat - 50 gm
Grated coconut - 1 cup
Groundnuts - 50 gm
Fry the rice, channa dhal and green gram dhal dry till they turn brown. Grind them finely in a mixer into powder form. Mix fried groundnuts and grated coconut with the powder.
In a vessel, pour a little water and add half of the jiggery - 250 gm - and stir it till it becomes a pagu - thick consistency. Pour the pagu in another vessel and mix only half the quantity of powder in it and mix well. Make round balls out of it.
Then proceed likewise with the remaining stuff.
Never prepare pagu for the whole quantity as it may become hard like rock.
This is a traditional sweet which my grandmother used to prepare when I was young.
