This is very very famous in Andhra ..delicious sweet .


Split yellow moong dal 1 cup split

Sugar 1 1/2 cup

Fresh grated coconut 1/2 cup

Chopped cashew nuts 1/4 cup

Cardamom powder 1 spoon

Salt pinch

Oil required deep frying

Soak moong dal for an hour, drain and grind to a fine paste adding 4 spoons water. You can even grind it without adding any water. Heat a bowl and add the sugar, the ground dhal paste, grated coconut, and mix well. You will find that the sugar melts and the mixture begins to form bubbles while cooking. Cook this mixture on low heat, stirring continuously till it forms into a thick lump. Remove from heat and mix cardamom powder and pinch of salt. Immediately transfer the mixture on to a wet cloth and spread the cooked mixture over it using a flat ladle which has been oiled and gently spread the mixture to form 1/2″ layer and cool. Cut into desired shape and separate the pieces very carefully lest they break and keep aside. Heat oil in a wide pan and deep fry the squares till golden brown. You can deep fry a batch of six to eight depending on the size of the pan Serve warm or cold. Store in an air tight container 4 days
