  1. When you start mixing the rice flour, add it slowly. You will not need the whole cup of flour. It depends on the quality of the flour.
  2. If you are using store bought rice flour,dry roast it slightly before adding it to jaggery syrup.
  3. Cook phuklein in medium flame. If not the outer layer will burn fast and inside will not be cooked.
