This sweet is slowly disappearing because of its humbleness. I am happy to revive it here, This is a cousin of Andhra Buralu sweet.

Green Gram Dhall (paiyar Parappu) 1 cup
Jaggery 1.5 cups
Sesame seeds (yellu) 1/2 cup
Cardamom 10 nos.
Maida flour 1 cup
Turmeric powder 2 pinches
Salt 1 pinch
Oil/Ghee for frying
You may add a table spoon of Copra powder. But this is optional.




Roast Dhall in a kadai. You may dry roast or with little ghee. Cool it and make a fine powder. Similarly roast sesame seeds also and powder .Remove cardamom covers and put them in tea jar. Powder cardamom and set aside . Mix sesame seeds powder, Dhall powder,  Cardamom powder and jaggery. Make small marble sized balls and arrange on a plate after smearing with a little ghee on plate surface. This will avoid sticking. Make a Batter of Maida, turmeric and salt by adding water carefully to dosai maavu consistency. Take care not to let any lumps being formed. Now take a kadai and put ghee in it. Heat on medium flame. Deep fry batches marbles of sweet kothu till golden brown. Keep a news paper in a vessel and put fried sweet on it. Excess ghee will be removed.
