Coconut & Dates n Bread Fritters

This is one special snack from my mom's kitchen that brings back my childhood memories. I could never stop eating this. I'm so great fan of coconut and dates filling that anything stuffed with this fills ma mouth with water; just like pazham nirachathu (plaintain stuffed with this filling), muttappola (sponge cake with the same stuffing) etc...

 Ingredients :

For the stuffing:

Coconut 1 3/4 cups
Sugar 75 ml/ 5 tbsp
Ghee 2 tbsp
Cashew 4-5 (chopped)
Cardamom powder a pinch
Dates 1/4 cup (pitted and chopped)

Method:

1. Heat Ghee in a pan. Fry cashews in it to a bit till it turns light brown.

2. Add coconut and sugar to this. Now stir this continously till the colour of the coconut changes slightly and the water evaporates completely..Check the taste in between and add more sugar if you need. Don't make it too dry. Do the whole process in slow fire. Add cardamom powder to it.

3.Switch off the flame & then add the dates. Mix well.

Ingredients:

Bread
Coconut & Date Filling
Bread crumbs
Oil


Method:

1. Trim the edges of the bread. Use normal white bread. Don't use milk bread or anything else as you may find difficulty  while rolling. I used to buy bread from my nearby grocery which is not that soft.

2. Take some water in a bowl. Dip bread in that water ;one at a time; slightly and then place it on your palm and press with the other palm so that the water in that bread drops.

3. The bread should still be moisturised a bit so that you'll find it easy to roll.

4. Now fill 1 or 2 teaspoonful of of the stuffing on that bread when it is still in your palm. The amount of filling depends on the size of bread you use

5. Now start rolling with the same palm; the way you do it for ladoos or unnakkai...

Check the pictures

6. Shape it nicely and take care that the filling is covered properly. Roll this onto bread crumbs and deep fry till it turns brown and crisp outside.

** You can use spicy filling inside too like samosa filling, chicken or Meat masala.

  7. salaam... i tried this last evening for tea break.. n the problem was that it was breaking during frying... i suppose it was because i didn't squeeze out the water properly? please let me know, so that I can make amends and try them again, as the one that stayed in shape tasted really yummy...

  8. yes, one reason may be becos of nt squeezing well. use normal bread; no butter or milk bread. cut the sides nicely;brown color & thick white attached to the brown. dip n water so that bread immerse in water; but for a second;then, squeeze well so that no water remains. fill it. & then roll nicely just like u do fr unnakkaaya or laddoo. chk the oil temperature too.. if it is too low ther is a chance of breaking.
