sorakaya(bottleguard) karam boorelu

Today i am making spicy snacks sorakaya karam boorelu. I learned these from my mother she makes really good.
                                    First we need to take very tender bottle guard. 

                                   Grate the bottle guard with vegetable grater.
                 Bottle guard oozes out water thats enough no need to add any water.

  • Grated bottle guard      2 1/2 cups
  • Rice flour                    3 cups
  • Cumin Seeds              1 1/2 tsp
  • Sesame seeds             2 Tbls
  • garlic cloves    (optional)
  • Oil for deep frying        
  • Salt to taste
Take grated bottle guard in a mixing bowl add cumin seeds,sesame seeds,salt,green chillies paste(you can grind garlic cloves along with chillies).

Mix it well and then add Rice flour, Knead the dough very well. If it needs add extra flour it depends on how fresh the bottle guard is. and taste the dough to check salt if needed add little salt (dont add too much salt at a time)and mix all together.

                          The dough should be soft like chapati dough.
Take a plastic sheet or zip lock bag and grease the sheet and your hand with oil. place a lemon size dough on the plastic sheet and spread it with your fingers to the size of poori.but dont make it thin leave it thick.

Heat the oil in a deep frying pan.Once again grease your hands and take out the karam boorelu from the plastic sheet carefully and slowly drop them in the hot oil.(be-careful while droping in hot oil).

                                    Fry them till they get light golden brown color.

          Take out from the oil. serve them with Tea or Coffee they taste really good.
