Could you please tell me more about this? I didnt know that such a dish could be prepared. Atleast in India. Being a Tamil from Srilanka, who lived in India for a loooooong time. I know that no body in Tamil nadu is aware of any such dish. I expected somebody from Southern Tamilnadu(with all those palm trees) to comeup with their traditional sweet.

In Sri Lanka, Palm tree is called 'Panai'. The fruit is called 'Panangaai'. The sweet dish, very similar to this is called, 'Panangai Paniyaaram'.

not sure abt tamilnadu....but in andhra....esp coastal andhra...this is very famous...n my fav. too
n hows panangai paniyaaram made?
any idea?

if u get the panangaai, findout whether its sour...while extracting, if u get bubbles, then it could be really sour...so get the extract which is smooth and thick n bit sweet...little bit of sourness is default thou.

Generally it can be extracted using the rectangular steel blade with which we generally scrape carrots, mangoes n all.

Now this extract is mixed with rice flour(sifted) n jaggery..
it looks like this


so it is made into small flat circles and deep fried...
Serve after coolin to room temperature...else they taste sour.

Actually it was my grandmas recipe, every year she prepares them for me....so this year, i learnt from her....they r simply delicious...u hardly get to know such tastes...
but s if ther are people who dont like the smell or taste of palm fruits....then this is def. not for them ;)
