Suzhiyam/Maida Sweet Balls - தமிழ் புத்தாண்டு நல் வாழ்த்துக்கள்

   Wishing You All a Very Happy Tamil New Year 2011.Suzhiyam/Kalla paniyaram is traditional south indian sweet..My mom n grandma use to make this for Feast n Padaiyal. I love this very much i use to eat lot during my childhood days,but now because of toothache and health conscious i m not able to eat any of my favorite sweets. This is my 1st try..This is my 150th Post !
jaggery and chana dal mixture dipped in maida batter n deep this not for diet and health conscious people kids can enjoy this ..and once a while for special occasions can enjoy this traditional sweet... right??
  1. Maida   1 cup
  2. Channa dal  1 and 1/4 cup
  3. Jaggery   1 cup
  4. Cardamom   5-6 (powdered)
  5. Nuts (cashew n almonds)    1 fist (finley chopped)
  6. Salt   1/4 tsp
  7. Cooking soda   a small pinch
  8. Turmeric powder   a small pinch
  9. Oil   for deep frying
  • Pressure cook chana dal and allow to cool and keep aside.
  • Powder the jaggery and put the cooked chana dal n jaggery in a blender and blend well to smooth paste without water.
  • Then transfer the grounded paste to a bowl and add chopped nuts and cardamom powder, mix well.
  • Divide it into small lemon size balls (come around 25 balls) and keep aside.
  • Take a wide bowl,add maida,salt,turmeric powder and cooking soda stir well and using water make it to the little thick batter (thicker than bonda mix).
  • Heat oil in a wok for deep frying.
  • When the oil gets really hot,take one ball at a time n dip inthe maida batter and drop carefully in to the hot oil , fry till light brown on both sides.(just like puri for for few minutes only..don't let it in oil for long time).
  • Do for all the balls and drain it in paper towel.
  • Thats it...yummy kalla paniyaram is ready and serve warm.
If the maida batter is thin will get thin crust...
