MOOLIKU

Mooliku is the sweet fried item prepared with moong with the combination of jaggery and coconut. It is served as a prasadam at one of our family temple. This recipe is quite simple and can be done with in a short period. Its so crispy outside and so soft inside. Whenever therez leftover cooked moong, I end up preparing this tasty mooliku.


INGREDIENTS FOR MOONG MIXTURE.

1 Cup Cooked Moong.

1/2 Cup Grated Coconut.

3 to 4 Medium Cubed Jaggery.

Pinch of Cardamom pd.

Water as per needed.

1 tsp Ghee.

INGREDIENTS FOR FRYING.

1/2 Cup Rice pd.

Water as per needed.

Pinch of Soda and Salt.

Oil for deep fry.

METHOD.

Heat a pan. Put jaggery and few drops of water. Keep on stiring until jaggery melts. Strain them.

In another pan, add the jaggery syrup and coconut. Saute for a while. Add the cooked moong and cardamom pd. Keep stirring until all its liquids evaporates. Lastly add ghee on its surrounding of the mixture and fry them for few min. (Make sure it does not fry for long as it would be harder later). Remove from flame and allow to cool. Make a small balls out of it and place them on a plate.


A closer snap.


In a bowl, add the rice flour, soda pd, salt with adequate amount of water. The consistency must be thin. Dip each balls into rice flour mixture and deep fry till its crispy. (No need to make them brown)


Place them on tissue papper and serve hot.


Enjoy!!

We call it Sugiyan/Sukian in Kerala. People from AP also make a similar sweet dipped in urad dal batter, Boorelu.
