      Bellam paramannam recipe

       Paramannam is a rice based sweet dish that is most popular in Andhra. This Indian dessert recipe is also known as annam payasam, bellam paramannam in Telugu. In simple words, bellam paramannam is nothing but Andhra style rice payasam with jaggery.  It is one of the most important naivedyam recipes that is offered to God for festivals like Sankranti, Varalakshmi Vratham, Ganesh chaturthi, Navratri and much more. This sweet dish is prepared with rice, milk, sugar or jaggery, nuts and ghee. Authentically paramannam is made by cooking raw rice in milk in an open pot. But I prepared this bellam paramannam in a pressure cooker. It took just 15 minutes for making this Andhra style payasam recipe. Consistency of paramannam depends on the quantity of milk and jaggery syrup. It looks thin when hot and it thickens over time. So you can adjust the quantity of milk as per the desired consistency. There are chances of paramannam getting curdled when you add jaggery syrup to the hot milk. So you should always add the jaggery syrup after switching off the flame. You can make it perfect all the time. So friends, try this yummy Andhra style paramannam recipe during this Navratri festival and enjoy. Lets see how to make bellam paramannam recipe with step by step pictures.

      Puran Poli With Wheat Flour – Wheat Flour Obbattu Recipe

      puran poli with wheat flour

      Puran poli with wheat flour  / wheat flour obbattu – Recipe with step by step pictures. Puran poli a popular festival sweet in Maharashtra. This sweet recipe is called by various names across India. They have small variations in ingredients and method of preparation. In Tamil, we call it as paruppu boli. In Kannada, its is obbattu / holige and Bobbatlu/ bobbattu in Telugu. After Ganesh chaturthi celebration, many of us must be thinking of using leftover chana dal pooranam that is prepared for kozhukattai / modak. Every year I make suzhiyan / susiyam using the leftover stuffing. So this year I prepared puran poli with wheat flour instead of maida for outer covering. It came out well and soft. To make soft puran poli, I followed my chapathi / roti recipe  adding ghee and curd to make the dough. I rested the dough for 30 minutes and tried it. As I had already prepared Karnataka style obbattu/ holige, I followed the same steps and procedure for stuffing and rolling the puran poli. It came out so good. Myself and Sendhil liked it very much and had the same for our breakfast. I had a satisfaction of making obbattu without maida adding less oil/ ghee. Friends, If you have leftover pooranam/ Hooran/ stuffing prepared for the festival, you can make this puran poli recipe with wheat flour. You can make this poli thin or thick as you wish.

      Check out my Karnataka style holige / Obbattu recipe with tips and tricks.

Make small lemon sized balls after the stuffing becomes warm. (TIP : If the pooran / Stuffing becomes watery and not thickens soon, you can add some besan flour ( say 1 to 2 tbsp) , mix without lumps and cook in medium flame till thick.

      Note

      • You can add 2 tbsp extra jaggery for more sweetness. Usually the ratio of peanuts and jaggery is 1:1. 
      • Ghee is not needed as the oil from peanut helps to shape ladoo.
      • You can add cardamom powder while grinding if you like.
