Sweet Somas Recipe - Somasi Recipe - Karanji Recipe


Somas is one of the most popular indian snack items. We make it each year, but somehow i haven't shared it so far. Finally i made it few days back and i am up with the recipe.

Normally a somas spoon is used to cut off the excess dough from the edges. But i lost mine and couldn't find my spoon when i need it. So i sealed the edges and created a twisted pattern. 



Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.



Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 30 mins
Makes: 12 to 15 somas

Ingredients:

For Dough:
All Purpose Flour / Maida - 1 cup
Sooji / Rava / Semolina - 2 tblspn
Salt a pinch
Ghee or Oil - 3 tblspn
Water as needed

For Filling:
Coconut - 1/2 cup
Gram Dal / Pottu kadalai - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp

Method:

Take maida, sooji, oil, salt in a bowl and rub with your fingers till it forms coarse crumbs. Add water slowly and knead to a stiff dough. Set aside for 30 mins.

Now take gram dal, sugar, cardamom in a blender and powder finely.

In a dry pan, toast coconut till it is light golden. Take it in a bowl, add the gram dal powder and mix well.

Now divide the dough into small balls. Roll it thinly, spoon some filling in the center and apply water all over the sides. Now cover it and seal the edges. You can use a somas spoon to run all over the edges to get even finish.

Heat oil in a pan, drop somas in this and fry till golden and crispy. Drain and serve warm.

Cool it down and store in a air tight container for upto a week.
