Suhiyan for Saraswati Pooja…

Saraswati pooja is celebrated on the 9th day of navaratri. Goddess saraswati is the presiding deity of the spoken word. Mounting on her swan, she plays on Kachchapi, her veena and is worshipped as the presiding deity of knowledge… To know a little more visit here …


This Saraswati pooja i made Suhiyan for neivedyam / prasadam…




Grated Coconut: 1 cup
Jaggery: 3/4 th cup
Cardamom: 5-6 (powder the spice)


Urad dal: 1 cup
Salt: 2 pinches
Oil : 3-4 cups for frying


1. Soak the urad dal for 3-4 hours in water.
2. Grind the urad dal in a processor or mixie with salt. The consistency should be a little thinner than what we grind for ulundu vadai (urad dal vadai)
3. Powder the jaggery and set aside…
4. Heat a kadai, add little water (1-3 tsp) and add the jaggery to it. Dissolve the jaggery in the water.
5. Once the jaggery starts frothing add the coconut and keep stirring on slow flame…
6. Cook till all the water is absorbed and the mixture thickens (if the mixture is rolled in the palm of the hands, one should be able to make small balls out of it). Add cardamom powder and keep aside…
7. Make small balls of the coconut mixture.
8. Dip the coconut balls in the urad dal mixture and fry them in oil…
