Sugiyan- sweet dal deep fried dumplings 

Sugiyan is a very popular snack in Kerala. Whenever we visit Kerala, while buying tea or coffee from the roadside stalls, this used to be a great accompaniment. There are variations to making this dish by changing the filling or the outer coating. I have tried using both green gram dal and Channa dal, and my personal favourite is the Channa dal filling. It is protein packed and very nutritious. Hope you enjoy this recipe.
