Susiyam - deep fried lentil stuffed fritters






 We got back from our holiday and i have been lazing around to be frank and kept wondering if i would even come back to my lovely blog ever.Tonight i decided i had enough of this hiatus and i should put in some love to the dear blog.More than blogging now i miss taking pictures.Wonder if fellow bloggers are ever in this situation.

We all love our tea time snacks and more to love because kids get back from school and its our mommies job to give them something good.After the long vacation i kept wondering if i should make snacks because we had loads of banana chips and muruku and stuff that i think i had enough for a while. This snack is something which is very famous in our native place and in Kerala we had a chance to drive through a small part of kerala this time and we loved it.

Susiyam is a stuffed deep fried snack usually has a lentil coconut jaggery mix as the stuffing and a rice flour plus flour mix as the outside.

Water as needed

Oil to deep fry


  • Mix enough water to maida and rice flour and mix to a smooth thick batter just right enough to coat the stuffing equally.
  • Soak green moong for 2 hours and cook it until soft in pressure cooker.
  • Grate jaggery, coconut and keep aside.Mix the cooked green moong, jaggery, coconut, cardamom powder, dry ginger/chukku powder and mix to make a thick stuffing.
  • Divide the stuffing equally and make balls.
