How to Make Sweet Dish-Buralu (Telugu)

  • Soak the pesara pappu in water and wash it well after 1 hour or so.
  • Then grind the pesara pappu, not adding much water. The batter should be like idli consistency.
  • Then, make idlis out of that batter (don't add salt).
  • Take out the idlis and put them in wide plate. Mash them completely and let them cool.
  • Take a thick bottom vessel, add one and half cup of sugar or less. Add a little bit of water and put it on the flame.
  • Just after 1-2 minutes, add the mashed pesarapappu idlis and mix well.
  • For nearly half an hour or less, you have to mix the whole mixture with the help of a spoon till the mixture thickens so that we can make small balls out of it.
  • Now, grind the rice and urad dal together in a blender like we prepare dosa batter. Add salt according to your taste in this batter.
  • Put oil on the stove for deep fry.
  • Make small puri type balls out of pesarapappu purnam (pesarappu+sugar). Dip them slowly in this batter (rice and urad dal) and deep-fry.
  • At a time you can add 5-6 buralu.
