How to Make Woorandai

Woorandai (Urandai, Wooranda), is the filling inside Gulgula's made for Purtassi prayers. It is usually made with Gram Dhal, desiccated coconut, elachi (cardamom) and sugar. Amma usually made Woorandai with breyani dhal or black lentils.

I have used black lentils for this recipe-but found that the mixture did not hold as easily as it used to when Amma made it so I used 2 tablespoons of condensed milk to help bind the ingredients.

To make larger quantities increase the ingredients proportionately.
  • 1 cup Gram dhal (or lentils of your choice)
  • Desired limit sugar
  • Half cup desiccated coconut
  • Half teaspoon elachi powder
Optional: Condensed Milk if you have trouble binding the mixture or use as a substitute for sugar

1. Pre-boil  lentils until soft. Drain off excess water. Cool.
2. Combine cooled lentils with all other ingredients to form a soft dough
3. Refrigerate for 30 minutes until the mixture is slightly firm
