How to Make Golden Sajjappa

  • Mix all the ingredients and cook them for a while, preferably in a non-stick vessel. Cook till the mixture is not too hard or soft.
  • Test by making a small ball and see if it is firm (if too hard, sprinkle some water and heat it again on the stove and if too soft just cook for a little longer). Turn off the stove.
  • Mix the ingredients for dough with lukewarm water.
  • Knead into a nice, soft dough.
  • Pour some oil onto the dough, so as to cover it in oil.
  • On a plastic sheet, put a few drops of oil, with your fingers (repeatedly dip your fingers in oil). Flatten the dough like puris.
  • Fill each with the filling and seal them off with the ends of the puris (like when making stuffed parathas, etc.)
  • Once sealed well, press into the puri shape again.
  • Deep fry in oil or ghee on low flame.
  • Fry each till the colour turns golden-brown.
  • The sajjiappas are ready and very tasty.
