  • Ghee –2 tsp
  • Cooking soda – A big pinch
  • Sugar – 1/2 tsp
  • Salt – A pinch
  • Water – 1/3 cup
For stuffing:
  • Sugar – 1/2 cup
  • Grated coconut – 1/2 cup

  • In the mean while , make stuffing. In a kadai , dry roast coconut for a minute till the wetness emanates.
  • In a mixer , take the dal , roasted coconut & cardamom seeds. Pulse it once or twice to make a coarse powder..

  • Now make a small poori ( should be slightly thick )and keep 2 tsp of filling in the centre. Close one side to make a semi circle.Seal the corner by pressing with ur finger ( dip ur fingers in water & seal it if needed). Now run the samosa spoon over the edges to make a design.. Discard the extras and set aside.

  • Heat oil in a kadai and deep fry on both sides till golden brown. It puffs up slightly like poori..Store in a box after it cools down.
