Sanjeera is a sweet Puri with the stuffing of rawa, sugar powder and cardamom powder. Its very common snack in Manglore, Udupi area. I learnt this recipe from my maternal Grand mother.

· Oil -- 2 tbsp
· Salt to taste
· Turmeric powder -- a pinch
For stuffing :-
· Bombay rawa -- 1 cup
· Sugar powder -- ¼- ½ cup
· Cardamom powder -- ½ tsp
Take one bowl, add maida, heat 2 tbsp of oil, pour this maida, add pinch of turmeric and salt, add little water knead sticky dough. Keep aside of at least one or 2 hours.
For stuffing:- Mix rawa, sugar powder and cardamom power and keep aside.
Divide the dough into lemon sized balls and prepare small puris, stuff the puris with rawa mixture in the centre of the puris and seal the edges tightly. Dust plain flour and roll into puris, heat oil and fry till it turns golden brown.
You can keep this puris for 3-4 days.
