Sweet pundi

Pundi- one more common dish from Mangalore. Usually we have sweet dishes on festivals. Example – “manjolu ireta gatti”. So this is kind of easier version of festival dish for people like me 🙂
Its very tasty and just gives extra flavor on special occasions.

Preparation :
1. Soak rice overnight. grind it and make it thin paste. Add little poha for softness and salt for taste.
2. Keep jaggery and coconut aside. Mix both of them. You can add elaichi for flavor.
3. Take a vessel, add the paste keep it in low heat and stir well till it becomes thick. Once it is think enough, take it out from heat.
4. take a small part of hard paste , make a small ball , press it, add jaggery and coconut mix. Close the paste, make it round again 🙂
5. The above step need to be performed when paste is hot or else it will be very hard to stuff inside and may break.
6. Same time keep steamer on heat. Keep the pundi in the steamer for 20-30 mins depending on which steamer you use.
7. Electrical steamer will take 30 mins. Our normal authentic steamer(tonduru) require only 20 mins.

My Deepavali sweet is ready!
