Pesara Pindi Bellallu / Green Gram Bubbles

A traditional dish always brings back sweet memories of childhood.And my mom was a expert to dole out so many savory dishes throughout the year.She ensured every season and moment had a special dish.She recently came over and I requested her to prepare this savory green gram bubbles tradionally known as pesara pindi bellallu. The texture and flavor of this savory evening snack can make your family rejoice the moment.The best part is it should be eaten warm with unlimited servings of ghee.!!So enjoy this savory snack my mom has prepared for me and my hubby.

  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1 cup green gram flour/moong (see the note)
  • pinch of hing
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/4 cup sesame
  • oil to fry
  • salt to taste
  • ghee for accompaniment

Mix all the above ingredients except sesame. Add enough water to it into make a nice soft dough.Divide the dough into equal part of medium size balls.Sprinkle sesame on each ball.On a plastic sheet take each ball and press it firmly to shape it in a round shape. Heat oil in a pan and deep fry it on a medium flame till each side is golden brown. Serve warm with a dash of ghee.
1. To make green gram flour grind it into a fine powder and sieve it. 
2.While pressing each ball do not press to much, it should be little thick for it to bubble.
