Coconut Potali is a sweet dish made in maharashtra on the eve of Haritalika tritiya and offered to Goddess Gauri as a prasad .
Grind rice and 1 cup grated coconut finely. Add salt and kep aside.
Mix the remaining coconut and jaggery, and cook till they blend well with each other. Add cardamom powder.
Cut banana leaves into about 15 cms squares. If using turmeric leaves, keep them whole. Smear each leaf with ghee and spread 1 spoon of rice batter on it. Place 1 spoon of coconut-jaggery mixture in the centre and fold the leaf over itself. Prepare all raw potalis in this manner.
