Thengai pooranam

Thengai pooranam is a mixture of coconut with the jaggery syrup. This is the first time I made thengai pooranam. I learnt this from my paati (Dad’s mom). Amma and paati makes pooranam as a stuffing for modhagam. This is one of my favourite sweets(Of course whatever that is made out of jaggery :P). Whenever they make this, I thought it is a very difficult recipe. But to make the thengai pooranam is very easy and you can make it in no minutes.



Freshly grated Coconut – 1 cup

Jaggery – 3/4 cup

Water – To dissolve the jaggery

Cardamom powder – A pinch

Ghee – 1 tbsp

  • Dissolve the jaggery in the water.
  • Strain it to remove the dust particles and it to one string consistency.
  • Add the ghee and cardomom powder to it. Mix well.
  • Now add the grated coconut and mix well so that the jaggery and the grated coconut are blended well.
  • This can be eaten as such or can be used for making modhagam.
