Commonly known as Poornam Burelu, this dish is a beloved sweet delicacy from Andhra Pradesh, India. Made with chana dal (yellow split peas) and jaggery, it is traditionally coated with rice batter and deep-fried to golden perfection. The rich filling inside and the crispy exterior offer a texture and taste sensation that is out of this world. Burelu is also a festival dish, commonly prepared during events like Ugadi, Sankranti, and Dussehra.
