  • 1 cup pottu kadalai / dalia / roasted chana dal
  • 1 cup jaggery


  • Roast the dal lightly till slightly few of them change color. This is to get the perfect crispiness.
  • Heat the jaggery with little water till it melts.
  • Strain to remove any impurities.
  • Again keep the syrup on heat till you can form a syrup ball in a bowl of water. Or you can get one string consistency. You can check out the video for better understanding at the bottom of this post.
  • Add the dal in the syrup and cook for 1 or 2 more minutes.
  • Transfer this mixture to a greased plate.
