A recipe that I searched on net and couldn't find any hint of this delicacy in any site. Not sure if I searched the right name or may be its in another name on the web. This is a sweet usually offered as a neivedyam during festivals. 

During the navarathri that just went by, I learnt and made it for the first time and it turned out delicious. It's very simple and easy to make.
Prep time: 3 hours                   
Cook time: 10 mins


For batter
1/2 cup raw rice
1/2 cup urad dhal
A pinch of salt

For filling:
4 tbsp grated jaggery
1 tsp ghee (clarified butter)
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/4tsp ellaichi powder
Water to dissolve the jaggery

Oil for deep frying

- Wash and soak the rice and dhal together for 3 hours.
- Grind the above into a thick batter adding little salt to taste. Should be lose enough to coat the filling well. Do not add water like you would for idli or dosa batter. Should be of thicker consistency than that.
- In a kadai, add the jaggery and pour little water to cover the jaggery. Wait for the jaggery to dissolve well and come to a boil.
- now add the coconut and the elaichi powder and cook until they come together.
- Add ghee and switch off heat. Let the filling cool to make them into dumplings.
- Once oil is heated, make small dumplings of the filling, dip in the batter and add to oil for frying.

- Remove from oil when golden brown.
- Tasty suiyan is ready to serve😀
