Sajja Boorelu | Deep Fried Bajra Pancakes- Andhra Cuisine


Traditionally Boorelu is sweet India dish in the Telugu festival which made with rice flour, coconut and jaggery. It’s mostly served hot with ghee but Sajja Boorelu is Andhra special which made with green millet flour or bajra. Boorelu were very much popular in south region which prepared on the occasion of Sankranti. For this recipe, we have to combine jaggery and flour together and prepare semi soft dough and fried them as puris. You can keep these sweet delicacies for more than week in dry and air tight container.

After a long time, I prepared one recipe for Indian cooking challenge event which hosted by Srivalli. She had chosen Sajja Boorelu recipe from Andhra cuisine which suggested by Padma Rekha which are easy to cook and quite healthy because of ingredients are millet flour and jaggery.

Preparation Time: 20 Minutes
Cooking Time: 30 Minutes
Servings: 4
Category: Sweet
Cuisine: Andhra Cuisine

2 Cup Bajra Atta/ Green Millet Flour
1 Cup Jaggery/ Gur
1/2 Tsp. Cardamom Powder
3 Tbsp. Coconut Powder
Oil for deep frying

Melt the jaggery with 2 cup of water and drain it to remove the impurities.
Now sieve the flour and combine with jaggery syrup, coconut powder and cardamom powder and add enough water to knead semi soft dough.


Divide the dough into equal portions. Take a plastic sheet or aluminium foil and apply some oil and roll it one ball into round form.

Heat the sufficient oil in deep and heavy bottom pan. Fry the each circles in small batches on low flame until to brown and cooked well. Serve hot boorelu.

Notes: You can store these sweets for more than one week in airtight container. You can add sesame seeds also instead of coconut or both.
