Andhra Special Boorelu / Sweet Lentil Balls

Wishing all my blog friends a very happy dasara. On this festive occasion I would like to share a authentic south indian andhra sweet prepared with lentils.This delicacy has a crispy exterior and  a soft sweet stuffing and tastes best when eaten warm with a dash of ghee/clarified butter as a dip. It is traditionally served with tamarind rice .

Ingredients
  • 1 cup urad dal / black gram lentil without skin
  • 2 cups raw rice
  • 1 cup chana dal / split bengal gram
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cardamom powder
  • a pinch of cooking soda
  • oil to deep fry
Procedure:

Step 1: Preparing the batter
Soak urad dal and rice with enough water in bowl overnight or 4-5 hrs,then discard the water and wash properly and make a smooth semi thick paste with adding required amount of water    


Step 2: Preparing the stuffing
Soak the chana dal for 30 min before cooking .Pressure cook the dal along with 3 cups water for 3 whistles and switch of the flame .After it cools open the pressure cooker and stain the water from dal completely .

 

In a blender make a smooth paste of sugar and dal. Heat a broad open pan and put this paste and stir continuously till this paste start to caramelize.Transfer the whole mixture to a plate ,keep aside and let it cool.After the dal mixture cools ,divide the total paste to large lemon size balls

Step 3: Deep Fry
Heat oil in a deep fry pan.Dip the balls in the batter and fry it till golden brown.
