Boorelu

Boorelu, a traditional dessert from Andhra Pradesh, is another gem from south India that spells decadence. Prepared during on Telegu festivals such as Varalakshmi Vratham or Durga Navratri, Boorelu (also known as Poornalu) is a simple, quick and easy dumpling dessert. It is stuffed with the goodness of chana dal, laced in urad dal with aromatic flavours of coconut and cardamom.

There is a similar dessert prepared by other south state called Tamil nadu. Its suzhiyam, which has same sweet stuffing. Both are similar in taste with slight outer texture.


What is the difference between suzhiyan and boorelu? In suzhiyan, maida and rice flour is used for the outer covering whereas boorelu needs rice + urad dal batter (Just like dosa batter) for the covering. Otherwise, the procedure for making sweet stuff is one and the same.


Note : I HAVE USED RICE FLOUR FOR COATING RATHER THEN DIPPING THEM IN URAD DAL AND RICE BATTTER(SAME AS DOSA BATTER)
