First of all, I am wishing  Grand Navaratri Celebrations, to everyone!!!


This sweet dessert is dedicated to Navaratri festival. This special sweet is known as opputu in Tamilnadu. It is named differently in various states of South India. Even though it has different variations and names, basically, it is loved by all folks.

Nutritious and delicious..!

There are  two basic versions in Tamil Nadu.  One is made with coconut and jaggery. Another one is dal with jaggery. The dal used for this opputtu is channa split dal.



Ingredients:

Chana dal 100 gms
Jaggery 100 gms
Cardamom powder half spoon or cardamom pods 5 nos
Ghee or sesame oil to toast two tablespoons.

For outer covering:

Maida /all purpose flour 100 gms
Turmeric half spoon or one pinch
Dry maida one spoon

Oil to grease.

Procedure:

Set aside to cool down and drain the water.
