Fried Gram Halwa - Pottukadalai halwa - Putnala Pappu Halwa

Fried Gram halwa, is an Authentic Vysyas Recipe, made with fried Gram, Rice , Coconut & Jaggery as Ingredients.I am a big fan of this Halwa.  I learnt this halwa from my Grand Mother. Fried Gram when blended with Jaggery,Rice & Coconut tastes yumm.Even the beginners can try this Recipe.

Fried Gram(Putnala Pappu) - 1 cup.
raw rice - 1/4 cup.
coconut - 1/4 cup.(Grated)
Jaggery - 3/4 cup.
Ghee - 2 tbsp.
 Soak the raw rice for  2 hours.

  • Grind  soaked  raw rice,fried Gram,coconut into a fine paste with needed water.Let the consistency be Moderate. if it is thick, it won't get cooked inside, if it is too watery it takes more time to cook.
  • Heat  the Ghee in a kadai, add the ground paste.
  • Add the Grated jaggery, Mix well.
  • stir continuously, until it leaves the sides of kadai.
  • Transfer the halwa to  the plate & level it.
