Sweet Somas

Sweet somasi is a very traditional delicious crispy sweet variety made with all purpose flour,rava for crispy outer covering and a yummy and simple coconut, sugar, fried gram filling in the centre. It is a deep fried sweet. It is traditionally made during festivals like Diwali , Vinayagar chaturthi and Holi in many parts of India. It is also called somas or karanji.We use a very special shaped spoon called somasi cutter to trim the outer edges of the dough and give the perfect somasi shape or you can just fold the dough with your hands or you can use somas mould available in the market.
