Hingair (rice flour and coconut nuggets)

Cooking Time

Preparation Time : 20

Cook Time : 30

Total Time : 50


Serves 25

  • 1 cup rice flour(newly harvested rice gives better flavour)

  • 1 cup freshly grated Coconut

  • 3/4 cup Sugar

  • 1 teaspoon Ghee

  • 2 cup Vegetable oil to deep fry


  • 01

    In a pan dry roast rice flour in medium heat until roasted flavour emits.Be careful not to change colour of the flour much.

  • 02

    Add 1 cup of grated coconut and roast in slow heat for about 6-7 minutes.

  • 03

    Add sugar and ghee to the pan and stir continuously.

  • 04

    Roast until sugar dissolves and the mixture becomes crumbly and sticky, for about 5-6 minutes. Sprinkle 1 or 2 teaspoon of water if you think that mixture is not sticky.

  • 05

    Remove from heat, let it cool for 3-4 minutes.

  • 06

    Make small patties out of the mixture and make biscuit like coins with the help of your hand.

  • 07

    You can make any shape but be careful that the nuggets should be little thick (about 1/2 inch).

  • 08

    I gave them heart shape with a cookie cutter. Traditionally they are made in triangle shape.

  • 09

    Make all the Hingair or nuggets and keep in a plate.

  • 10

    In medium heat oil drop 2-3 nuggets at a time and reduce the flame.

  • 11

    Fry them until light golden brown in low heat.

  • 12

    Fry them all in batches.

  • 13

    They are little crunchy from outside and soft from inside. Tastes best with a cup of tea.
