Wash the Akki thari and soak  it for an hour.

Run the pulp through a sieve to get a smooth paste.

Mix the Akki thari and the pulp.

Add the coconut pieces, sugar/jaggery, soda, and salt to the pulp mixture and keep it aside for an hour.

Run the Banana leaf over the flame for a few seconds on both sides to soften them and make it flexible to fold without breaking.
