Pappu Purnalu- Puran Poli Low calorie

Hope you all had a great diwali!!! We had a great and sweet Diwali. I prepared lot of sweets on this diwali. This is my first diwali after marriage with out my parents in a different country. My mother was surprised to hear the list of sweets that I made without her help. Yes, i never prepared sweets on my own in India, always my mother used to prepare it for us. I miss my mothers food. Enough of the story now, lets talk about low calorie Puran poli. Puran poli is the sweet stuffing inside an Indian bread. It is called pappu purnalu in telugu. I made this with the help of paniyaram/ ponganalu maker.

For stuffing
Atleast 6hrs soaked chana dal/senaga pappu-1cup
Bellam/jaggery-1/2cup grated
(You can use sugar insted of jaggery 1/2cup)
Cardamom seeds-3pods- make a powder

For batter
Soak 1cup of urad dal/minapa pappu and 2 cups of rice for 6hrs or more and grind it in to a fine paste and let it to ferment for 6hrs atleast.

Cook chana dal in cooker/microwave with some water. The dal should look tender and easily breakable when you try to mash it with your hand. Mash it, if it is not mashed properly grind it. Now take a skillet and heat ghee and add this dal mixture to it and cook for 2minutes under medium flame.( Powder sugar if you are using it) Add jaggery and mix well. When all the jaggery is melted and mixed well turn off the stove and add cardamom powder and mix well. Keep this mixtuer aside and let it cool.

Now heat a ponganalu maker and add little oil in all molds and add a half spoon of batter in each of molds. Take very little amount of dal stuffing in your hand and make it in to a round shape. Repeat this kind of balls and keep aside. Now keep each ball on the center of the batter on the ponganalu maker and add 1/2 spoon of batter on top of the stuffing and add few drops of oil from sides and cook till golden brown on both sides. Enjoy hot!!!!! hope you like it!!!!
