Wish u all,happy and Safe diwali..I just found my Somas pics in my dad's laptop which i took last summer.This is made by inlaws.I have already  posted their Spicy kulambu here.Actually,They r pro in making sweets..Festivals r best celebrated with family and Sweets.Isnt it?..

For Outer Layer
Maida-1 kg
Rava-50 gms
Oil to Deep Fry
Salt to Taste
For Stuffing

Bengal gram powder-400 gms
Coarsely powdered
Coconut-1 ,grated,Sundried for a day
Sugar-450 gms
Khus Khus-50 gms
Cardamon Powder-2 tsp


Mix the powdered roasted bengal gram dal and also the Cardomon 

Dry roast the Khus khus for few secs until it turns cripsy

Grate the Coconut and Sun dry it...When she made,it was hot mid summer 
she kept it for 4 hours 

If u dont get sun ,u can dry roast the coconut until it is free from moisture

Mix all the ingredients for stuffing(puranam) 

For the Dough

Mix the rava ,maida ,and the salt 

Sprinkle minimum of water and make a tight dough

Rest the dough for 10 minutes 

Use the heavy grinding stone/Ammikallu and hit the dough on it for 10 minutes until it turns soft and much more flexible

Soon,roll them into flat (chapathi ) rotis 

Keep the stuffing(puranam) in center

Close the edges ,make into half moon..Use water to seal them

Move them to Airy place and let them dry for few minutes

Once they are dried(5-7 minutes under fan) ,the edges starts to curl up.
Dont over dry it,since u will get only browny somas

In medium flame,fry all the somas(patience!!)  as white as ever 

U can store this somas for a month....Wish u all Happy Deepavalli,Have a blast!
