Sojjappam ~ Sooji Halwa Stuffed In Puri

S for Sojjappam under Regional Cuisine for BM #32. The letter S was the easiest and the first ones to be made and finalized. I love these so much and moreover so many memories attached to them that I was impatient to share them here!

I remember in my growing up years this was a regular fare for some of the festivals and also mini functions / get-togethers etc. 

Since my kids love Sooji halwa, I made these for them to satisfy my craving and also as an offering to the Lord Almighty!

Ingredients - 

Wheat Flour 1 cup
Salt 1/2 tsp or to taste
Water to knead the dough as needed
Oil to deep fry

For the Stuffing - 
Rava Kesari / Sooji Halwa 1/2 - 3/4 cup (Without any nuts)

Sojjappam ~ Sooji Halwa Stuffed In Puri

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, knead the whole wheat flour with water with a little salt and turmeric into a dough and keep it covered for 10-15 min.

Divide the dough into equal parts (about 8-10) and roll each portion of the dough into small circles. Put in at least a teaspoon of filling and close it into a ball.

Roll out this ball into a thin circle like a roti/puri making sure that the filling doesn't ooze out. Also carefully roll it so the filling spreads out evenly.

Heat oil in a wok/kadai. After the oil is hot enough, gently slide in the rolled out puri and let it puff out. Cook on both sides until cooked through and drain onto paper towels.

Continue with the rest of the dough. Serve them warm and enjoy!
