Poornam Boorelu Recipe with step by step instructions.తెలుగు వెర్షన్.
Poornalu or Poornam Boorelu recipe is prepared on all auspicious occasions like festivals and ceremonies.my mom used to prepare these poornalu very tasty.she used to add a mixture(to the filling stuff) made of cashew nuts, almonds, pistachios, peanuts&desiccatted coconut powder.they taste even better than the normal poornalu.
I always remember my mom whenever I make this recipe.I really miss her and her amazing recipes a lot.we always find some pretexts to avoid the food and we irritate our mother when we were children.but one will realize the value of mother only when she becomes a mother.Hmmm…. :(.
Coming to the recipe, it is little difficult for the beginners.but after one attempt, you can prepare it easily.if you are going to prepare this you need to make sure that the inner stuff is hard enough to bind into laddoos.the outer batter to wrap the laddoos should be neither too runny nor too hard.if you make a runny batter then you cannot cover the laddoos with batter.a hard batter will not stick to the laddoos.
in few regions, people use the batter made of maida/all purpose flour for the outer layer.it prevents the outer layer from causing splits but doesn’t taste good.so I have added only 2 tbsp of maida to the Urad dal&rice batter.this poornam boorelu taste good when served with melted ghee.they remain fresh up to 1 1/2 days at normal room temperature.but they get spoil very quickly in hot weathers.so I always the leftover poornalu in the refrigerator and keep them in the microwave for 5 to 10 seconds before using.I hope you try and enjoy this beautiful recipe.

divide the filling stuff into equal proportions and make into round balls.
put the balls in the urad dal&rice batter.
coat them with the batter with a spoon properly.
make sure that all the stuff is fully covered with batter on all sides.
heat oil for deep-frying.
when the oil is hot, drop the coated balls into the oil carefully.
