Prepare coconut filling:

Mix coconut, condensed milk and regular milk on a non-stick pan. The mixture should be semi sticky but not runny.
Add cardamom and cinnamon. Turn on stove and stir constantly until the mixture becomes slightly sticky.

Prepare Dumplings:

Boil water and add salt.
Turn off stove and add rice flour to boiling water to form a firm but soft and not sticky dough.
The dough should bounce back if you press with a finger. Adjust flour accordingly. Knead well for about 5 minutes.
Take part of the dough and roll it out. Cut out circles with a cookie cutter.
Place a small amount of coconut filling on each circle. Brush the edges of with water and seal tightly to form a crescent (semi-circular) shape.
