Poornam Burelu/Burelu/Bengal Gram Dumplings

Burelu or Poornam Burelu are made mainly in marriages and they will be specially offered to goddess Lakshmi during festivals in Andhra Pradesh.
Making them perfectly is a tricky job. It needs lot of patience and confidence. If we follow some simple tricks we can get perfect burelu.


Bengal Gram - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 1/4 cup
Cardamom Powder -1tsp
Fresh Coconut - 1/2 cup(grated)
Dumpling batter - 2 cups or according to our requirement
Oil - for frying


Soak bengal gram for two to three hours.
Grind it to a fine paste. Be careful while grinding, do not add more water. Adding more water will make the paste very loose, which again takes lot of oil while frying. It should be like a thick paste.
Pressure cook it for three whistles.
Allow it to cool down. Mash it and add sugar, grated coconut and cardamom powder to it. 
Mix well and make medium size balls out of it. We get 24 of them. 
For dumpling batter we can use fresh and not fermented dosa batter.
Or we can mix store bought rice flour and all purpose flour in 3:1 ratio with water. Make ladle pour batter with the flours. 
Heat oil in a kadai. Drop these bengal gram dumplings in the batter and roll them. Drop them slowly in the oil. We can drop four to six dumplings at a time in the oil. Fry them in high flame. Fry them till they turn into brown colour. Take them out from the oil with the help of slotted ladle. 
Tasty burelu ready for serving. Serve them with ghee.
