Poornam boorelu or Poornaalu - Andhra style

1 cup bengalgram
1 cup grated jaggery or sugar
12 cardamom powdered
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup coconut cut into small pieces (optional)
1 cup blackgram
1 cup rice
Wash and soak blackgram and rice for 4hrs. Drain water and grind to a smooth paste adding very little water. And a pinch of salt and mix well and leave it covered for another 4 hrs
Pressure cook bengalgram with just enough water. Add jaggery or sugar to it and cook it again stirring in between till it becomes a thick paste. Add the coconut pieces (fried in a tbsp of melted butter), cardamom powder and the remaining melted butter and mix well. Make them into medium size balls.

Heat oil, dip each sweet ball in the blackgram-rice flour mix and fry till golden brown. Three to four ball can be fried at a time. Stored in a air tight container, they last for two to three days. Before eating, make a hole and fill it with two spoons of melted butter, provided your diet permits.
