Boil jaggery with 1 cup water in a deep non-stick pan. When the jaggery dissolves completely, strain to remove impurities.
Place the rice flour in a bowl. Add soonth, green cardamom powder and coconut and mix. Add the jaggery water, little by little, and knead into a stiff dough.
Add 1 tsp ghee and knead again. Heat sufficient water in a steamer. Cut the banana leaves into 6 inch x 6 inch pieces and singe them on direct flame to make them pliable.
Grease these with a little ghee. Place small portions of the dough and fold the leaves to make a parcel. Seal with a toothpick. Place them in the steamer and steam for 10-15 minutes. Just before serving open the leaves and drizzle a little ghee over each kozhakattai.
