Stuffed Rice Dumplings (Mutlins stuffed with coconut& jaggery)

3 cups of parboiled rice (soaked for 5-6 hours)
5 tbsp desiccated coconut
1 tsp salt

For the stuffing

1 cup of freshly grated coconut
1/2 cup of grated jaggery

Mix the above and keep the stuffing aside.

Grind the soaked rice mixed with grated desiccated coconut & salt in a food processor to a thick dough consitency. Takee a little dough flatten it in your palm giving a little cup shape, stuff it with 1 tsp of the filling and now close the dumpling making sure the stuffing is properly sealed with a little thumb print on top.

Take a steamer add 3 cups of water, arrange the dumplings on the steamer plate.

On high flame steam the dumplings for 25 minutes.

Enjoy this for breakfast.

If you do not want to stuff it just make plain dumplings, shape the dough into small/big dumplings with the thumb print on top..steam and enjoy.

Must the rice be of parboiled variety? Can it be of non-parboiled, like dry short-grain or jasmine rice? Is it the parboiled process that make the rice flour sticky? Thanks.

@ Peter, You can try any other rice you wish. But you will get the authentic mutlin taste only with parboiled rice.
