For the outer layer
Maida / All purpose flour- 1 cup
Salt a pinch
For the stuffing
Fried Gram / Pappula podi - 1/2 cup
Jaggery - 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 jaggery to remove the scum and heat in a pan, when it starts coming together, add the coarse fried gram powder, keep stirring.
Add the cardamom, 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 it when it turns golden.
