Mundhiri Kothu

Mundhiri Kothu, this is an authentic dish of South Tamil Nadu and South Kerala. This is made from roasted green gram flour. This is a healthy snack recipe for any festive season or you can even have it as a tea time snack. We have to make small balls out of green gram flour, jaggery, coconut etc, and dip it in all purpose flour mix and fry it. This sweet will be little harder to byte but the taste will be really good. This can be stored even for a week.

Whole Green Gram - 1 Cup
Jaggery - 1 Cup
Coconut - 1/4 Cup
All Purpose Flour (Maida) - 1/2 Cup
Rice Flour - 1/2 Cup
Black Sesame Seeds - 1 tsp.
Ghee - 1 tbsp.
Cardamom - 2 No.
Dry Ginger (Sukku) - Small Piece
Salt to add in All Purpose Flour and Rice Flour Batter.

1. Keep all ingredients ready. Dry roast the whole green gram till you get nice aroma.
2. Dry roast sesame seeds and coconut separately.
3. Add jaggery and water in a pan. Bring to boil. Allow the jaggery to melt completely to make thin  syrup. Strain the syrup to remove any impurities. Add roasted green gram in a blender and grind it to make powder.
4. Grind the coconut into a coarse powder. Crush the cardamom and dry ginger. Take a bowl, add the green gram powder, coconut powder, sesame seeds and dry ginger powder.
5. Add jaggery syrup little by little to the powdered mix and mix well. Add ghee and mix well. Stop adding the syrup when you are able to hold the mix into balls.
6. Make small balls from the mix and keep it ready. Add all purpose flour, rice flour and salt into a bowl. Add water little by little to make a batter. The batter should be little thick, just like bajji batter consistency.
7. Dip the green gram balls in the batter and deep fry it in hot oil.
8. Fry on all sides, so that the ball is completely cooked. Transfer it to a paper towel to drain the excess oil.
Tasty and healthy Mundhiri Kothu is ready to serve for any festival or as a snack.
