Deep Fried ......

Munthiri Kothu

Munthiri kothu is golden, yellow in colour, it’s an authentic sweet and favourite evening snack in the Tirunelveli and the surrounding areas. It’s a easy sweet preparation, I am sure the fine prepared munthiri kothu can keep it for a month, the taste will initiate you for the second time preparation.

Munthiri Kothu means “bunch of balls”. You can see that from this picture it is a bind with each one.


Green Gram Flour – 250g
Jaggery – 200g Cup
Cardamom – as required
Cloves – two
Ginger Powder – a pinch
Maida – 200 gram
Rice – 60g
Lemon Yellow colour – a pinch
Grated Coconut – 1 tbsp
Oil – For deep frying
Ghee – 2 tbsp


1.Fry the green gram and rice with cardamom and cloves in medium fire, coarsely grind the gram mixture.
2.Make thick Jaggery syrup; add the grinded powder and ginger powder, grated Coconut, little ghee, mix all these ingredients well.
3.While it is in little heat, make even size balls. Prepare the batter with maida and lemon yellow colour; dip the balls in this batter.
4.Deep fry it in hot oil.
5.It is a wonderful evening snack; take along with tea or coffee.

I recommend you, Taste it after a day or few hours it has been prepared.
