Suruttai Poli ~ ICC

This month Srivalli Chose Suruttai Poli for ICC ..Thanks to Nithya's mom for sharing this recipe with us ...This is a new recipe to me ...wasn't that very confident in trying this recipe Nithya gave a note saying frying part is bit tricky ...and we should roll it as quickly as possible,and we have to make sure the pooris are not crispy ....atlast I tried making this came very perfect .Hope u will also enjoy making this ...

Ingredients needed : 
for stuffing :
  • Roasted Chana dal / Pottukadalai - 1 cup
  • Grated coconut - 1/2 cup
  • Powdered Sugar - 1/2 cup
  • Elachi powder 
  • Cashews - 10 
  • Ghee - little
for  Pooris : 
  • Maida 
  • Salt - a pinch
  • Oil for deep frying 
  • water

Method : 

In a kadai add little ghee and add broken cashews and fry them for few mins that add grated coconut and fry it in low heat for few mins ...grind the roasted chana dal in to coarse powder to that add the fried cashews and coconut and powdered sugar and mix it well and set aside in a bowl add maida + salt and mix it well and just sprinkle water little by little and make a stiff dough and set aside for 10 mins ...and then,roll the pooris as thin as possible and keep it aside for 10 mins. this way the pooris get dried well and it will avoid puffing up while frying it heat oil in a kadai and fry the rolled pooris on both sides just for few secs. make sure u remove it immediately and place a spoonfull of stuffing and roll it tightly ...and keep it aside in a plate facing down then fry the next poori and continue the same ...if u have anyone for help , it will be bit easy as one can fry the pooris and the other one can do the stuffing and rolling part I had to alone, I did one by one by turning the flame to low. Once it is cooled ..u can even store it for few more days ...
