Sweet Somasa Coconut Stuffing

#SamosaStuffing : Sweet #somasa is a traditional sweet usually prepared during deepavali in South India especially in Tamil Nadu.
The stuffing powder is prepared with coconut, khus khus, sugar and other ingredients.
The dough is prepared with maida.
Then the dough is rolled into thin pooris and the prepared powder is placed over one half of the poori.
Then the other half is folded over and securely sealing the edges. Then the edges are trimmed with a somasa cutter.
Thus made somasas are then fried in oil. It tastes too good.
Here we will see how to prepare the stuffing.

Ingredients :
coconut scrap                                : 1 1/2 cup
rawa ( sooji )                                 : 3/4 cup
fried gram                                      : 1 cup
khus khus                                      : 1/4 cup
sugar                                             : 1 1/2 cup ( adjust )
cloves                                            : 4
cardamom                                      : 2

Method :
Keep a kadai on slow flame.
Dry roast all the given ingredients one by one.
Coconut should be fried till it looses its water content and slightly turns golden brown.
Allow all the ingredients to come to room temperature.
Then grind one by one using a mixer grinder.
Mix well and store in an air tight container.
( I packed in a cover to send it to my daughter )

we can enjoy this powder as it is.
I like to have it rolled with chappathy or poori.
The somasa powder tastes very good with poori.

Note :
The ratio of given ingredients can be altered.
The taste differs according to the amount of ingredients.
