Pappula Boorellu - Fried Gram Dumplings

>>  Monday, March 7, 2011

This was one of the snack that Athamma made hoping my kids will love to eat. Given the fact that my kids never at most times prefer a sweet dish, she hoped to lure them saying their cousins love to eat this. Even that didn't tempt them enough to eat this. But the fact that my nephew and nieces love this, mean most kids will love it right, only my kids don't like sweets. And yes whatever was made I finished it and naturally it was yum!

Weekend was hectic and Konda is busy preparing for her exams. It's going to get pretty busy at home with the kids exams.

Ingredients Needed:

For the outer layer

Maida / All purpose flour- 1 cup
Salt a pinch

For the stuffing

Fried Gram / Pappula podi - 1/2 cup
Jaggary - 1/2 cup
Cardamon a pinch
Grated Coconut - 2 tsp
Ghee as required / Milk as required
Oil for deep frying

Method to prepare:

Grind the fried gram coarsely. Melt the jaggary to remove the scum and heat in a pan, when it starts coming together, add the coarse fried gram powder, keep stirring.

Add the cardamon, grated coconut, mix well. The mix should come out as thick so as to easily dip in the flour. Add milk if required. Divide into small equal balls.

To make the outer batter, in a bowl, take the all purpose flour, add salt. Slowly add water as required to make a dropping batter.

Heat a pan with oil, when it is hot enough, dip the fried gram balls into the maida batter, gently drop into the hot oil.

Cook on both sides and remove when it turns golden.

I do remember eating these back home and I was not a big fan of indian sweets back then... I was more of a desserts person, cakes and ice creams.. But now, anything sweet is divine to me.. delicious boorellu!

Healthy and delicious boorelu. Can understand how it is when kids say no to these type of snacks.

Suma Gandlur March 8, 2011 at 3:42 AM  

My 9 year old daughter is also a member of the "I don't even want to look at sweets" club. I know that it is hard to lure kids if they are not interested.
BTW I would have enjoyed that plate of boorelu. :)

Priya (Yallapantula) Mitharwal March 8, 2011 at 10:23 PM  

They look great and delicious dear. Even my kids do not like anything sweet, so we are on the same boat.

veena krishnakumar March 9, 2011 at 9:14 AM  

Have never tasted this. My daughter is finicky about eating sweet dishes except ofcourse chocolates:-), i think i will try this out for her....

Archana March 11, 2011 at 1:08 PM  

Yummy! I love sweets but no one home likes them except for cakes and chocolates. So trying this out is terribly risky. On the brighter side my friends at work will love them.
