My mom made this for my wedding anniversary this year. I don't eat much of sweets either homemade or store bought. I love to eat only spicy ones. But this one was too good, as it had only mild sweetness in it. Also my son loved it a lot. When my mom started preparing it, I really loved the aroma which filled in my entire house. It was a cardamom aroma, it was very pleasant. This needs not much work to be done and it can easily be prepared within minutes, when the batter is ready. The batter can also be stored for a week as it is made of jaggery. This dish is actually prepared during Maatu pongal offering to GOD.
Rice - 1 cup
Uradh Dhal - 1 tbsp
Jaggery - 1/2 cup (If you need it more sweeter, you can add more)
Cardamom - 5
Coconut - 2 tbsp
Soak the rice and dhal for 1 hr and grind them together in a grinder.
Before taking it off the grinder, add the rest of the ingredients and grind it.
The Batter is ready now. In a kadai add oil for frying.
Once the oil is heated, pour a spoon of batter. Immediately it will swell like a poori.
Turn it aside and take it off. Don't fry it too much.
Actually this one will have crispier portions at the end and softer portion in the middle. The crispier portion will be like a ring and center portion will be like an idly.
If it is of less sweet, you can have 4-5 at a time. If it is more sweeter, you can have only 2.
