  • 1/2 tsp sesame seeds
  • a pinch dry ginger powder
  • a pinch cardamom powder
  • oil to deep fry

Instructions

  • To a sauce pan - take karupatti(palm jaggery) add water to it.Let it boil for a while until palm jaggery melts.Strain and keep aside to cool.
  • In a pan add rice flour(I used store bought), add urad dal flour(homemade).Homemade rice flour link here.
  • Dry roast until it slightly fumes up.Cool down then sieve it well atleast twice.Now add this to a mixing bowl or pan - add butter,sesame,dry ginger powder, cardamom powder,coconut.
  • Mix well so that butter is evenly mixed.Now add palm jaggery syrup to it.
  • Mix well then add little water,bring together to a soft dough.
  • Roll into marble sized ball and spread in kitchen towel.Repeat to finish the dough.Set aside for 10 mins.Heat oil, add few balls and fry first.
  • Fry till reddish brown.Drain in tissue.Repeat to finish.Always fry in batches, do not overcrowd.
  • Cool down then store.

Notes

  • Make sure to fry in low medium flame until nicely browned else it will not get cooked inside.But the color will be dark outside so be patient and cook slowly.
  • While rolling,if there is a crack its ok as it helps to let out the moisture through the crack which will avoid bursting.
