Heat a pan and add the rice. Dry roast the rice in medium heat for 10-12 minutes. The rice will change color,and there will be popping sound. Switch off the flame and allow this to cool a bit. Add the rice into the mixer and make it into a fine powder. Add grated coconut, powdered jaggery, cardamom powder, cumin powder,ghee and blend for one more minute.
