How to make Munthiri Kothu

  1. Fry the Green Gram in a pan for 8-9 minutes on a medium flame until it turns golden brown.
  2. Dry Roast the grated coconut till it turns dark brown, make sure not to burn it. This gives the munthiri kothu a long shelf life.

  4. Boil the jaggery. First remove the dust then make this into a thick syrup. No need to make the one string consistency here.

  6. Add the jaggrey syrup and mix them.
  7. Make even sized balls as and when the syrup is hot.
  8. Cover it with a cotton cloth and dry the balls for around 5 hours.
  9. Take the rice flour, turmeric, salt. Mix all the ingredients in a batter by adding water.
  10. Heat a thick bottomed vessel with oil, dip the balls in the batter and deep fry it in hot oil.
  11. Turn once to fry the other side.

My Tip:

For richness, we can add raisin/finely cut cashew nuts to the pooranam.
