  • 1/2 cup sago
  • salt to taste
  • water as needed

For the stuffing:

  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder


  • Soak sago in water till immersing level for 2 hrs.After 2 hrs, drain water completely.
  • For the inner stuffing : To a bowl add coconut,cardamom powder and sugar, mix well and set aside.Add drained sago to a mixer jar.
  • Pulse it few times, transfer to a bowl add salt, mix it well gather it together.
  • Make small balls and set aside.Now take a ball, flatten it make a small cup like then add the filling.Seal it and make a ball.
  • Likewise repeat to finish.Grease steamer plate with oil.Place the plate inside idli steamer.
  • Steam for 15 mins in low medium flame.Turns shiny and looks cooked, remove and serve hot!


  • Make sure you soak sago for atleast 2 hrs.Do not add more water, add only till immersing level.
  • Make sure to drain water from sago completely.
  • Do not use nylon sago which we use for payasam, use white sago.
  • I think 1/3 cup coconut would be enough as I had little extra after stuffing.
