How to Prepare Stuffing:
Take a pan or Kadai.
Dry roast the flax seeds, until dark brown or until the nice aroma starts coming. Let it cool down. (Make sure to stir it occasionally to avoid it from burning).
Once it gets cold, grind it and make a powder. (do not grind too much else it will leave oil)
Now add jaggery to it and mix well. Set aside. (you can sprinkle little water so that it binds well)
How to Mix Dough:
Heat water in a pan, let it boil.
Add rice flour to the water slowly and mix well. Turn off the flame and leave for some time.
After that take out the mixture in a bowl and knead it into a soft and smooth dough.
How to Make Pitha:
Take a small portion of dough and flatten with your hand.
Now put some flax and jaggery mixture.
Close it from all sides and give the desired shape.
Now take a deep vessel and fill it with 3/4 part of water and let it boil.
Now slowly add Pithas to boiling water.
Initially, it will go down to the bottom of the vessel and after some time it floats upon the surface of the water, which means it's done and it's time to take it out.
