Festive Specials - Paala Munjalu

By: Admin
Region: Indian
Dish:Vegetarian - Festivals
Time to Prepare: 30 Mins


-2 cup rice flour
-4 tablespoon coconut oil
-2 tablespoon sugar
-1 1/4 cup milk
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1 1/4 cup chana dal
-1/4 teaspoon spice cardamom
-3/4 cup sugar


- Place milk into a spacious container and allow it to come to a boil over a medium flame. Introduce sugar and a hint of salt, stirring thoroughly for proper incorporation. Gradually introduce the rice flour into the milk while maintaining a slow and steady stirring to prevent the formation of lumps. Blend the mixture well and then turn off the flame. Cover with a lid and set aside.

- Put chana dal and water into a pressure cooker, then set the cooker over medium heat. Let it cook until you hear 3 whistles, then turn off the stove. Allow the steam to release naturally, then carefully drain the water. Transfer the cooked dal to a deep pan and use a masher to create a mashed texture.

- Position the deep pan on the stovetop burner and heat it over medium flame. Introduce sugar, a dash of salt, and cardamom powder. Stir the mixture thoroughly and allow it to simmer until it achieves a thick consistency. Next, give it another round of mashing, then transfer it onto a plate to cool down.

- After the temperature has returned to normal, shape the mixture into small, bite-sized balls and place them individually on a plate. Subsequently, prepare an outer coating using the rice flour mixture, and proceed to fill each ball with the sweet dal mixture. Repeat this process for the entire batch of dough.

- Heat coconut oil in a pan over medium flame and deep-fry the balls from both the sides. Make sure that you fry them batch by batch, don’t overload the pan. Take out the balls on a tissue paper to soak excess oil and serve warm! You can also store them for 2-3 days in an airtight container.
