This was a dish I made for Gokulashtami, the birthday of Lord Krishna. I made this along with appams, sweet aval and thiratipal which I’d blogged earlier. This was my first and I would admit not the greatest attempt at this dish. It is cinchy as recipes go and my family enjoyed it thoroughly, but you know when you can make a dish better right. I think I know how I can make it better next time. But the recipe is a good one and I now share it with you – I was also inspired to blog this because I was at Kalyani’s blog and saw her wonderful event calling for jaggery and sesame dishes. So here goes
1/2 cup urad flour
2tbsp water to make batter with urad flour
1 cup of grated coconut
1/2 cup of sesame seeds powdered
1 cup of jaggery
1/2 tsp powdered cardamom
Oil to fry
Method for pUran/stuffing
Add 1 tsp of water to a sauce pan and add the jaggery to it
When the jaggery gets to a syrupy consistency add the coconut and the powdered sesame and cardamom
Allow all the water to evaporate an the mixture to get a thick, ball-able consistency
Allow it to cool down
In a bowl, mix ready urad flour in water to a Bajji Mavu consistency (thick but flowing)
Heat oil in a small deep pan.
Make balls out of the puran/stuffing
Dip in the urad batter and drop into the hot oil.
Allow the top to cook to a golden brown.
Remove and strain.
Serve as offering to Lord Krishna (if you are making it for him) before popping one into your mouth
