SUKHIYAN

The other day i came across this event in JAY'S blog called i love my dad.
The name caught my attention.My memories went back to 23 years. I lost my father when i was 16, what a loss!!!!!! sometimes i wonder how we ever overcame this loss, I guess my mom stood solidly behind us..........After reading about the event, i wondered what he liked the most and the one dish that struck me was " SUKHIYAN". This sweet is prepared during navarathri and krishna jayanthi.So, i thought i will prepare this for the event. Wish he was here.................Even after such a long time , i still miss him the same
I LOVE YOU APPA!!!!!!!!

A very simple sweet to prepare
1. Grated coconut 1 cup

2. Powdered jaggery 3/4 cup

3.cardamom powder 1/2 tsp

FOR THE COVERING

1. 8 tbsp RICE FLOUR
2. 2 tbsp URAD DHAL FLOUR( BLACK GRAM FLOUR)

Add a little water to the powdered jaggery and heat it till it becomes liquid. strain this liquid to remove the dust and the fine mud. Add the strained liquid to the coconut and cook on slow fire till all the liquid eveporates. Add this stage add the cardomom powder and cool the mixture to make small balls.
For the covering, mix both the flours with enough water . The consistency should be as a coating consistency. We generally add a pich of salt to this. Dip the balls in this covering and deep fry in moderate heat taking care that the ball is properly coated on all sides.Instead of these flours you can also use all purppose flour for the covering
Sukhiyan is ready. Takes about 20 minutes to get this sweet ready


I am sending this to I LOVE MY DAD.
