Mothagam, one of my fav. snack from kerala.There is no tea shop in kerala without these wonderful snacks on their glass shelves.Me and H both luv this alot and got a perfect oppertunity to make these for this month's Jihva as the ingredient is Jaggery.So this my entry for Jihva - Jaggery.


Chrupayar/Green gram dal - 1 cup
Jaggery - 1 cup (small pieces)
Maida - 1/2 cup
Water - as needed
Salt - as needed
Oil -for deep frying


Soak green gram dal overnight and boil it in a pressure cooker for 1 whistle.Switch off the stove and let the pressure go open the cooker and drain water off from the dal.Now take dal in a bowl and add tiny pieces of jaggery and mix them well.Make them into small sized balls.For the batter , mix maida,salt with water into a smooth batter.(If you want u can a pinch of baking soda).The batter should be slightly thinner than the dosa batter.Roll each balls into the batter till they are fullt coated and deep fry them in hot oil.
