Cheyeeam - deep-fried balls of ground chickpeas.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Soak kadalai paruppu in clean water for at least 8 hours. They will double in size, so allow extra water for them to soak up!
  2. For pooranam, boil kadalai paruppu. This should take about 40 minutes in a pot, or about 9 minutes in a pressure cooker (plus 10 minutes to depressurise).
  3. Grind boiled kadalai paruppu with the jaggery and elachi, without adding any water, making a dough. Make small balls with the dough.
  4. Make fine dough of maida with a little water, forming a dense consistency. Add salt as needed.
  5. Soak pooranam balls in the maida dough.
  6. Pour the oil in a pan. After heating oil, add a few pooranam balls. Deep fry individually until golden.
