Posted on Updated on

Hurikadle is the Dalia dal/Roasted Bengalgram dal. Also known by putani dali in konkani and pottu kalle in tamil. We use it almost all fried mixtures, in coconut chutney for extra flavour and is the main ingredient in the Masala dosa’s popular red garlic chutney. We also prepare Panchakajaya for Krishna janmashtami and Ganesh chathurthi. I put up 2 varieties of panchakajayas on this blog earlier. (See Bengal Gram Panchakajaya and Tulsi Pooja Panchakajaya ). However, this is a good prasadam for those who are just starting off and are looking something simple. Bengalgram dal panchakajaya and Hurikadale panchakajaya both are prasad items for Ganesh chathurthi at our place!!!!!!

What you need to have:

1. Hurikadle/Dalia dal – 1 cup

2. Sugar – 3/4 cup

3. Grated Copra – 2-3 tablespoons

4. Cardamom – 6-8

5. Sesame seeds (black) – 2 Teaspoons

Ingredients of Hurikadle Panchakajaya

What you do with what you have:

1. Clean hurikadle to see if there is any dirt and keep aside. Grate dry copra and also peal cardamom.

2. Place a broad based bowl on medium flame and warm up dal to get rid of the raw smell for about 5-10 minutes stiring continuously. Add pealed cardamom to it. (Make sure you don’t burn it – ensure that the dal does not change shade)

    Hi, just this morning I got this very same recipe from my mother-in-law. This panchgajjaya is prasad in most south and uttar canara ganapathy temples. Was hoping to make this year for Chaturthi. Thank you for the recipe, I have two tried and tested guaranteed for one recipe!

      Hi Lata,

      This being the simplest prasadam recipe , i thought it would of immense help to one and all. Even for Lakshmi pooja this is the best prasadam since it is another form of Bengalgram Dal which is sacred for almighty lakshmi.
