Hope everyone had a wonderful Diwal.I do...I never thought i would try my hand on these treats.I did and came out perfect and tasted delicious.Sorry to post about my diwali soo late....was lazy after the festival.

Also im soo happy to tell you that Priya chose my vegetable briyani as a winner in complete my thali event.

Also vegetable briyani here.

1.Maida : 1 cup
2.Ghee : 1/4 cup
3.Water : as needed
a pinch of cooking soda.
4.Sugar : 1 cup
5.Water : 1/4 cup
6.Cardamon Powder : 1tsp
7.Oil for deep frying.

In a bowl,mix maida,cooking soda and ghee.Rub through your hands till its crumbly.
Add little by little water and make a soft dough.Cover and keep aside for 1 hour.
Meanwhile bring sugar and water to boil to one thread consistency.Heat the oil in a deep frying pan.
Take the dough and pinch a lemon size ball and roll into a ball and flatten slightly.
Fry in the oil on both sides until brown and drain in a paper towel.
Immediately put in the sugar syrup.Leave for 5 mins.
Take down and keep in a plate.
Cool it and enjoy!!

Its a tradition in our family to make Yellappa before night of diwali.So this time i decided to try this and came out perfect.
1.Raw Rice : 1/2 cup
2.Jaggery : 3/4 cup
3.Coconut : 3/4 cup (freshly grated)
4.Black sesame seeds : 1tsp
5.Oil for frying.

Soak the rice for 4 to 5 hours.
Cut the coconut into pieces and grind into smooth powder.
Grind the rice,jaggery and coconut.
Add little by little water to make smooth batter.Heat the oil.
The consistency should be little thick than dosa batter.
Check the oil by dropping a little batter.when it sizzle and it comes up its ready.
Add the sesame seeds and pour a laddle of batter.
It will sizzle and come right up.when the bottom is brown ,turn over and cook till brown.
Drain on paper towel and enjoy!!
