Shahi Puli Pitha / Glazed Fried Coconut Stuffed Dumplings

Puli Pitha


Shahi Puli Pitha / Glazed coconut dumpling is foreign artistic varsion of fried Puli pitha without compromising flavour. Instead of fresh grated coconut I have used desiccated coconut here to make easier for people who live overseas. And instead of mawa I have used evaporated milk to make more convenient and easier. This is actually coconut stuffed fried dumpling. If you dont have fresh grated coconut, you can use dry coconut and 1/2 cup coconut cream to give flavour to make it handy and simple.

N.B.: Thanks Rajani for encouraging me to start again my food blog.
