Sukrunde

This is a traditional konkani sweet . Usually is it made during the baby shower along with jalebi or barfi . the sweets are then covered and the expected mother is made to pick one of them . If she picks sukrunde that means she will deliver a baby boy and if she chooses jalebi or barfi it means a baby girl. Off course all this is done purely for fun and no one takes it seriously.
I  had made these  during Navaratri but could not post it then.
Sukrunde are made with either channa daal or moong daal.


Ingredients :

2 cups .....................channa daal or moong daal
1 1/2  cup .......................jaggery
2 tbsp..........................cashew pieces (optional)
1 tsp.............................cardamom powder
2 cups .......................maida
1 tsp........................turmeric powder
oil for deep frying


Method :

Soak the channa daal overnight and pressure cook it till soft .
In a kadhai add channa daal and jagerry and keep on stirring .
First the jaggery with melt and then slowly the mixture will start thickening.
When the mixture is almost dry remove from gas.
Cool it and add cashew pieces and cardomom .
Make lemon sized balls of this mixture and keep aside.
In a separate vessel add the maida, turmeric powder, water and make thick batter.
The batter should be little thicker than dosa batter.
Dip the balls in this batter and deep fry in hot oil.
