pornam boorelu

I like this poornalu very much. Its a traditional sweet in south India. my mother makes these for every "varalaxmi vratam".


  • 1 cup channa dal(sanaga pappu)
  • 1 cup jaggery
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1/4 cup rice
  • 1/4 cup urad dal(minapa pappu)
  • oil for deep frying
Boil channa dal and cook till it is well cooked and drain the water when hot, and let it dry on a paper towel if needed.

Powder the boiled channa dal in food processor or if it is well cooked you can press with masher.
and  add jaggery to channa dal powder and cook till the mixer is thick, then add cardamom powder.
Let this mixture cool down for some time,and make small lemon size balls out of it.
For the batter,you need to soak the rice and urad dal at least for 4 hrs before, and grind to paste.Batter is same like dosa batter but not the fermented dough, after making the batter wait for half an hour then you can use it.
Take the balls and dip them in the batter and deep fry them in fresh oil.


Take them out and place on a paper towel.
