For the stuffing:

Mix the Jaggery and coconut in a pan ,to this add cardamom and poppy seeds powder and roasted fine semolina 1 - 2 Tbsp and mix it thoroughly. Keep stirring to get the consistency thick enough to make balls for stuffing
Take a small ball sized dough and roll it into a chapathi and stuff the coconut ball and roll it over again into round shaped polis. Flip this over the hot Tava on both the sides till done with a dab of ghee & it's ready to savour ! Enjoy!!
