Poornalu / Poornam Boorelu

This a traditional special sweet dish that we often make for festivals and special occassions. It can be a great appetizer.

2 cups Urad Dal
4 cups Rice

For Stuffing(Poornam):
2 cups Chana Dal
3 cups Sugar
6 cardamoms/elaichi


You can use the readymade Dosa mix also for this. But, to prepare from scratch, here is what you do. Soak the rice and urad dal overnight. Grind them using some water. Use as less amount of water as possible.

Pressure cook the chana dal atleast for about 7-8 whistles. After the cooker is cooled, drain the excess water. Then, mashup the dal add the sugar to it and let it cook on the stove until all the sugar is melted and the dal is solid . Peel the cardomom skin, powder the seeds and add to this. Stir the mixture continuously. Turn off the heat and let it cool.

You can make both of these and save in the refrigerator couple of days ahead of time.

To make poornalu, make a lime size ball out of the stuffing, dip it in the batter such that all of the dal is covered with the batter. Heat oil in a kadai and when its hot enough to fry, then drop the poornalu slowly into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown in color.

Serve hot. Makes about 40 pieces approximately.Enjoy !
